Music Compound invites its members and the community to enjoy an unforgettable evening of music, food, art and more during its Shred the Love fundraiser, the proceeds of which support scholarships for young people from the region who have lost a loved one to COVID-19 or whose parents have lost their jobs due to the pandemic. Organizers are hoping that the event, which takes place on Saturday, Jan. 15 at 6 p.m. at the Music Compound (1751 Cattlemen Rd., Sarasota), will raise at least $ 5,000. This event, a partnership with the local nonprofit Every Child, Inc. is hosted by middle school and high school students, led by home student Sam Stahlmann. ‘Shred the Love’ was originally started as an IB project at Riverview High School to support career preparation, allow students to learn how to plan and implement an event, and see the value of charitable works. The inaugural Shred the Love concert in 2018 funded the purchase of ukuleles for children with cancer; in 2019, the event funded music programs at the Sarasota County Boys & Girls clubs and Children First. Founded 20 years ago by Sarasota philanthropist Judy Alexander, Every Child, Inc. has distributed thousands of backpacks with school supplies, distributed thousands of holiday gifts, provided groceries to hundreds of families, distributed thousands of books and worked on many other projects with other local agencies. Each Child, an all-volunteer group, donated nearly $ 3,000 in scholarships for Music Compound students in 2021. The event is open to the public; tickets cost $ 15.
