St. Petersburg Elks Lodge #1224 donated the use of its hall (a $500 value) to Music Sweet Music Inc. (MSM), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that helps children and adults with disabilities reach none-musical goals such as speech, hand-eye coordination, and increase of range of motion as well as assisting with many other disabilities and disorders by contract board-certified music therapists. The chair for the event was St. Petersburg Lodge member May Graci who also volunteers with MSM. The fundraiser was a jukebox bingo that lasted two hours with attendees winning donated prizes each time their musical bingo card won. Lodge member Kat Chaplin donated a handmade quilt. Over 110 people attended the event and over $2,000 was raised.
