Imagine Foundation & Conn-Selmer Corporation deliver $50,000 dollars in donated Musical Instruments to Chaparral High School in

Las Vegas, NV

What an AWESOME way to start the day and begin the month! Sin City Presents Magazine had the priveledge of accompanying Imagine for the delivery of over $50,000 dollars in brand new musical instruments from Conn-Selmer.

I’m not sure who was more excited about the delivery, the students or Imagine Founder and President Lisa Chapman Goulston and Vice President Carl Hampton. To see the looks on the children’s faces that morning as they opened each instrument. It may as well have been diamonds and jewels in each case, it was almost as if they were afraid to touch them. But with a little encouragement they quickly got them all unpacked before you knew it they were all making a joyful noise.

The band directors Carl Baker and Paul Beuning as well as Vice Principle, Butch Heiss of the school were so very gracious. Their program is STELLAR and the kids were nothing short of BRILLIANT!!

“I was so completely blown away by their musicianship that I was brought to tears!! It's teachers and administrators such as these that truly make a difference for our kids and I am honored to be able to play a part in their development and musical growth. Thank you so very much to everyone who gives of their time, talent and resources to make this happen for our kids, we are eternally grateful!! I was also happy to have my son, Kyle and his beautiful girlfriend, Lydia onboard today to assist in our delivery. I am overwhelmed with gratitude ...
