Mental Health Event Raises Funds for Bands

Baldwin Park High School’s Braves Entertainment Corps and Sierra Vista High School’s Band were presented with two $12,000 donation checks by the City of Baldwin Park to use in their music programs during the annual Mental Health Awareness Walk, Fair and Car Show on May 7.

Baldwin Park Unified, in partnership with the City of Baldwin Park, hosted the event for the second year in a row to promote Mental Health Awareness. Additional partners included Project Hope, Oath to Country Foundation, Looms for Lupus and True Pride Car Club.

“We are so incredibly grateful to the City of Baldwin Park, as well as our local partners, for these generous donations to our high school bands,” Superintendent Dr. Froilan N. Mendoza said. “These funds will benefit future Visual and Performing Arts students for years to come, ensuring BPUSD musicians can continue to follow their passions.”

For the one-mile journey, attendees walked, ran and cycled through the heart of the city from City Hall to Morgan Park.

The conclusion of the walk included a car show, refreshments, live music and vendors providing information on mental health services and support.
