On May 16th the board of Benicia Unified School District will acknowledge ABC Music Store owners Stan and Marianne Houston for donating more than $100,000 over the past five years to the district’s various music programs. What started as a for-profit enterprise, when originally conceived by the Houston’s, quickly transformed into a fund raising platform as a result of the dire financial burden placed on the district’s operating budget. The Houston’s elected to forego personal profiteering from their Benicia store and instead transferred the last five years of net income to Benicia school music classes and programs. The public is invited to the board meeting as well as a reception which follows immediately at their music store.
Date of BUSD board meeting: Thursday May 16, 2013
Location: District Offices - 350 East K Street - Board Room
Reception: Immediately following Board presentation
Location: ABC Music Store & Academy, 739 First Street – Downtown Benicia
