Warner Bros. Offers John Muir Middle School $10,000 Challenge Grant
John Muir Middle School is thrilled to announce the addition of a generous challenge grant of $10,000 from Warner Bros., a worldwide leader in entertainment, to benefit fundraising efforts that began with THE REALLY BIG SHOW on Feb. 22.
An additional $10,000 in community donations now needs to be raised to match this challenge grant in order for the school to gain access to the funds. This challenge grant and all matching gifts will be used to upgrade and modernize the Allan H. Burnside auditorium. This beloved auditorium is where Muir showcases its best and brightest for all events including dance, theater, band, assemblies, award ceremonies, and community meetings.
Warner Bros. is known for its commitment to corporate responsibility, involvement in community initiatives, and giving back. John Muir is tremendously grateful for such a generous challenge grant offer and thrilled to have such a well-known and well-respected corporate partner involved in this fundraising campaign.
These auditorium renovations will benefit the students and community in many ways, so John Muir Middle School is encouraging everyone to donate and help make this challenge grant a reality!
