The Hard Rock Heals Foundation has provided grants to more than 100 community driven music programs around the world. Working with Hard Rock Cafe Niagara Falls USA, we were introduced to Buffalo Music Hall of Fame and their Musicians Medics Program, the latest recipient of a $5,000 grant. This funding will help the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame Musician Medics Initiative provide comfort through music to patients and their loved ones in hospitals.
Local musicians volunteer their time each month to perform and speak to patients in small gathering spaces or individual hospital rooms. In addition, Hall of Famers play an important role, serving as “ambassadors” on site, working closely with both the Musician Medics performers and hospital staff.
“Musician Medics is honored and thankful to have our mission recognized by the Hard Rock Cafe and Hard Rock Heals,” said Richard Sargent, program manager for Musician Medics. “This grant will enable us to extend the comfort and joy to more children and veterans.”
