The organizations selected to participate in this benefit event will receive half the net proceeds for the evening.

Organizers of the Pacific High School scoreboard that honored the late Randy George, were the partnering recipient the 2017 event, receiving $4,165.

Deadline to apply to share in the proceeds is Friday, Oct. 27.

To qualify to participate in the benefit, organizations must be of nonprofit status, have a Meramec Valley R-III School District-based charter.

Participating organizations are required to sell 50 percent of the tickets of the event and assist with production.

The organizations chosen will not be eligible for future Pianos for a Purpose proceeds for a minimum of five years after their recipient year.
