The Winona Early Childhood Initiative will be the sole recipient of funds from the fourth annual Midwest Music Fest to be held on April 18-20, 2013.
The Winona Early Childhood Initiative will use the donated funds to support high quality early childhood programming in the Winona area.
The Midwest Music Fest is a volunteer-driven three-day music festival held every year in Winona. Begun in 2010 by Sam Brown, MWMF brings together bands and musical acts at various venues around the community to raise funds for local non-profit organizations.
Brown recently received an annual Fine Arts Award from the city’s Fine Arts Commission last month for his work on the festival and for supporting local music.
Over the past three years, the festival has donated 20-thousand, 500-dollars to seven area non-profits, including Winona Semcac Head Start, Winona Fine Arts Commission and Winona360.
