NAMM Foundation Recognizes and Thanks Generous Donors at The 2022 NAMM Show
The generosity of NAMM Members was on full display at The 2022 NAMM Show’s global reception, where members were recognized for their donations to The NAMM Foundation. Each donation will help the Foundation continue its work to advance music-making and learning opportunities for people of all ages and abilities, scientific research, philanthropic giving, and other public service programs.
NAMM Foundation Chair Tom Sumner, NAMM Foundation Executive Director Mary Luehrsen, and NAMM President and CEO Joe Lamond were on hand to receive and express their gratitude to the philanthropic industry leaders for their unwavering commitment to the vision of creating a more musical world.
At the ceremony, Luehrsen shared, “The work of the NAMM Foundation would not be possible without the generosity of our members and other donors. Collectively, so much can be done to advance music-making, and each gift to The NAMM Foundation brings our industry one step closer to realizing a more musical world.”
Honorees at the presentation included Chris Martin, Martin Guitar Co.; The Gretsch Family; Michael Reisman, The Liz Reisman Fund; Chuck Surack, Sweetwater; and The Ash Family, among many others. View the photos here: https://namm.pixieset.com/the2022nammfoundationdonorphotos/
