WHAT: Many friends, family members and local businesses have found new value in the penny. If they collect enough they can send a most deserving group of students to Italy. The City Wide Penny Drive to benefit Martin Luther King Jr. High School student singers is one of many small fundraisers planned to make the students’ dream trip a reality. They were invited to perform at several locations in Italy and might even be honored by an audience with the Pope. It is an experience of a lifetime.
WHEN: City Wide Penny Drive, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday, February 29
WHERE: Hot Sam’s/99 Monroe; Altamoda Salon/2123 Gratiot; Enterprise Uniform/2862 W. Grand Blvd.; Starbucks/7201 Jefferson; and Martin Luther King High School/3200 E. Lafayette
WHO: Martin Luther King Jr. High School Concert Choir and Madrigal Singers.
