Extraordinary Night of Music Planned to Help Students Succeed in the Arts

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - Oct. 7, 2015 - TelAve -- The Plumosa School of the Arts Foundation is thrilled to announce that Drew Tucker &The New Standard will be headlining their 3rd Annual fundraiser to be held at the school's theater in Delray Beach on November 20th at 8pm. The Foundation is comprised of community leaders, arts advocates and educators who raise funds to support the artistic aspirations of Plumosa's students. All seating for this event is on-stage, with Drew and his 9-piece orchestra, offering a truly spectacular experience. Tickets are $75 and are available at

"As a community that excels in arts and culture, we need to focus the spotlight on what is needed to help our next generation of artists excel," said foundation board member Brian Rodolfo. "Plumosa offers one of the finest K-5 arts programs in the country. However, many of the students are entitled to free or reduced lunch. This makes private lessons, instruments and tickets to see professional performances almost impossible for most families."

The foundation's board raises funds through special events, such as this concert, in order to supply the school's budding talent with the necessities to advance in the competitive arts arena. Musical equipment, costumes, scholarships for private lessons, alumni support and opportunities to learn from college level and professional artists are some of the ways the board supports the dreams of these students.

This mission is especially important to Drew Tucker, who is not only headlining the fundraiser, but is also the president of the foundation.

"Plumosa attracts students from all over South County," said Drew Tucker, "So our goal is to reach out to community and business leaders who understand the importance of what Plumosa is providing, and have them support our mission."

Tucker continued, "We all know that involvement with the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, verbal skills and so much more. And now that we have a school that offers a comprehensive curriculum, we need to help these kids, our community's kids, seize this opportunity to advance to the next level of excellence."

To entice ticket sales, Tucker, who is regarded as one of the finest jazz vibraphonists in the country, has created a fun-filled show that will attract music lovers of all genres.

"The New Standard is Jazz, it's hip hop, it's pop, it's top 40, it's urban and soul, it's really good music," he said.

The concert is the Foundation's main fundraiser of the year and only 100 tickets are available, however, the foundation is also seeking sponsorship support. To learn how to get involved, please visit or call 561-330-3900.
