Niagara Bottling funds new equipment for
Lake Minneola High School Band program 

Niagara Cares, the charitable division of Niagara Bottling, recently awarded a grant of nearly $67,000 to Lake Minneola High School. The funds from Niagara Cares will be used to upgrade the sound system for the band with the inclusion of wireless microphones for soloists on the field, a mixing board, amplifiers and other technology along with new instruments.

The school has an award-winning band program of 110 students who travel throughout the state of Florida and compete in the Florida Marching Band Championships (FMBC). For the past two years, the ensemble has finished in the top five for marching units that have been invited to perform at the Peach Bowl, in Atlanta, GA despite having to use failing or borrowed equipment.
