East Ridge High School Receives $20,000 Donation from Walt Disney World to Help Restore Band Program

When local East Ridge High School’s band program was impacted by a devastating fire, the students, their parents and the Central Florida community came together with an outpouring of support to help the school through this unexpected challenge.

This morning, Walt Disney World Resort presented a $20,000 donation to East Ridge High School to help restore their band program and ensure their students have the opportunity to step into the spotlight and chase their dreams in time for their next football game September 27.
