Witherite Law Group and 1-800-TruckWreck Award Three Atlanta High School Band Programs $10,000 Each.
Amy Witherite, Witherite Law Group, and 1-800-TruckWreck recently partnered with Atlanta Radio One stations to present $10,000 checks to three winners of the Inaugural 1-800-TruckWreck Great Atlanta High School Band Challenge. Hot 107.9, Majic 107.5/97.5, and Praise102.5 promoted the challenge over the last several weeks, and the winners were surprised by Amy Witherite and the stations at each school’s site.
Congratulations to Jonesboro High School, Pebblebrook High School, and New Manchester High School for winning the challenge by receiving the most views of their band performance videos and sharing how they will put the donation to good use!
Nearly 30 Atlanta-area high school bands submitted videos to compete for the top three spots. The challenge generated over 19,000 votes for the schools, demonstrating the true passion Georgians have for high school marching bands.
With all the talented high school bands in the Atlanta area, this unique contest allowed students to showcase their talents while giving their band program the opportunity to win a significant donation.
“It’s truly an honor to partner with Radio One in supporting and developing the Inaugural High School Band Challenge," says Amy Witherite, founder of Witherite Law Group and 1-800-TruckWreck. “School budgets are so stretched these days; it’s critical to maintain programs like band to provide unique opportunities to students that advance their well-being and education.”
“Helping 1-800-TruckWreck bring the joy of music to our schools was a great way to start the school year,” said Tim Davies, Regional Vice President, Urban One.
The Inaugural 1-800-TruckWreck Great Atlanta High School Band Challenge was an unforgettable experience for all parties involved. Music is the heartbeat of Atlanta, and Witherite Law Group and 1-800-TruckWreck look forward to continuing to support creative arts programs in schools.
