In making the donation, GuitarTown hits a high note with the school district.
"It's just a fantastic surprise," said Superintendent Todd Gray. "This is a huge donation and this will be very well-used in the music and art departments."
According to its website, Waukesha GuitarTown Project's mission is to "raise funds to better the lives of those served by local charitable organizations, including Waukesha school music and art programs, the new Waukesha County Museum Les Paul exhibit, and the new Waukesha Community Health Center."
There are "no strings attached" for the gift, other than putting the GuitarTown logo on instruments and equipment purchased with the funds, Gray said.
Gray said he was surprised by the amount of the donation. He was expecting a $5,000 or $10,000 donation.
"This is just a wonderful gift," he said, thanking GuitarTown. He also thanked Mayor Jeff Scrima for thinking of the district as a recipient for the donation.
