Chase Community Giving 2011

CHASE Community GivingThe Chase Community Giving Project we blogged about last year is on again. Round 2 is underway and a few corps and the organizations that support music activities (DCI, WGI, BOA) need your vote. Each organization has presented a video about their “big idea” on what they would do with the grand prize of $500,00. Each one needs your help, but there are more music-based groups than you have votes. So watch each video, and vote for your favorite ideas. Voting ends on May 25th so you need to hurry!
