Be Part of Making it Happen!

We have events throughout the year and there is always an opportunity to help. Every year we work to raise money to reduce the costs of camps, trips, banquets, provide scholarships, and other expenses. This year we raised approximately $53,000! This money allowed a substantial discount be given to our members whose students participated in this year’s trip to Universal Studios.

Join us and support the programs and students in the PT music programs while meeting new people, connecting with the community, and trying excellent products and local establishments at the same time! We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and all donations are tax deductible.
