The Sponsors of Musical Enrichment has seen the benefits that music has made in peoples lives. With the continuing struggle that most performing art groups face, they knew that ways were needed for encouraging and supporting local programs.

S.O.M.E. is entirely self-supported, and each year, raises funds through community events, then donates the proceeds to numerous art and music programs that are traditionally dependent upon out side resources.

So far in 2016, S.O.M.E. has provided grants to the following performing arts groups:

     —  Stagg High School Band
     —  Franklin High School Band
     —  Edison High School Band
     —  Chavez High School Band
     —  St. Mary’s High School Band
     —  Linden High School Band
     —  Jim Ott Brass Ensemble
