Jennifer says thanks for a hugely successful ACP fundraiser!

Thu, May 12, 2011 at 11:45 AM

Jennifer's CharityBuzz auction benefiting Attic Community Playground closed yesterday, and thanks to the generosity of our amazing fans, we raised over $50,000 for music education! From the pen of Ms. Nettles...

Thank You!!! Thank you to all the wonderful artists and friends who donated tickets and passes to the ACP online auction. Thank you as well to all the fans who bid.

Through the funds that were raised, ACP will be able to begin to take grant applications this fall. Grants will be awarded to schools and music programs that are in need of funds to support their maintenance and growth!

Because of your generosity kids will get to learn, experience, and celebrate music. Your donations are also allowing students an opportunity to explore their excitement and passion for music. This exploration can offer much-needed self-expression, foster creativity, facilitate their brain development in the areas of math and language, or even inspire a career. (Not to mention allow them to have fun!)

If you know of any music program that could use a boost, get online at and inquire about the grant application process. A thousand thanks again to all who donated and bid. Your karma will be greatly enriched!!

- Jennifer

    Aahhhhhhhhhh. Deep belly-sigh, followed by surreptitious grin. Sweet, sweet, sweet.
    Kids and music are made for each other. Thank-you Jennifer Nettles, and all others who gave your energy and minds and bodies to this project. We all benefit from such endeavors, so thank-you for building a more beautiful world for us.

    Thank you Jennifer for having this charity auction to help keep the arts/music in our schools....I am a teacher and I've seen the so-called "budget cuts" that cut out our children's arts!!!! Children need to learn to express themselves through music and other least learn to enjoy them!!!!! Thanks again for your help......The teachers of America salute you Ms. Nettles! *Terri*

    I am ecstatic that this had such phenomenal results!! Speaking from experience, music & art can be two of the most developmental aspects of one's life. It can fill a void or loneliness when no one else can. I am so thankful for Jennifer & Kristian / Sugarland and the positive results they've had on my life. Anyway, bottom line, congratulations JNett on your success with this auction! You deserve it! And you are Loved :-)
