E.A.R.T.H. Awareness is Entertainers against Ruining Their Home. A group of entertainment industry professionals, dedicated to the preservation of creative outlets and natural experiences for the youth of Central Florida. E.A.R.T.H. Awareness was created to promote quality family time in a natural setting, with programs in music, art, drama, planet-protecting education, and fun.
The organization raises funds to help with their " Music in the Schools Program", a direct-to-teacher classroom supply program for art, music, and drama, programs in Central Florida schools. We make lasting memories of fun educational experiences, and teach families and children how to make a creative difference for the future. The preservation of roots music is a key component to E.A.R.T.H.'S programs. EARTH has donated over $65,000 in musical instruments and equipment to Brevard county schools since 2000, this fundraiser is to assist EARTH in purchasing instruments for Cape View Elementary School, in Cape Canaveral. Our goal is to purchase new instruments for this school, so the children can have hands on musical experiences in their classroom. Cape View Elementary is a title 1 school and many of the children in this school are on subsidized lunch. Cape View Elementary has minimal instruments in their music program. The music teacher receives a minimal budget per year for music instruments & supplies. Help us help this wonderful school.
Non-Stop Music, all weekend long, is the goal of this years festivities. The festivities will kick off with a VIP Cocktail Party Friday, September 28th from 8 PM to 11 PM featuring jazz sensation Ocean Breeze. The music festival will be held on Saturday from NOON to 10 PM. There will also be a music memorabilia silent auction, raffles, and more fun awaiting our music fans. Make sure to buy your chance to win an Autographed guitar.
From 10 PM to 1 AM an after festival jam will feature the performers from the event mixing it up with Space Coast sensation Luna Pearl at Baja Tavern in Port Canaveral.
