Fundraiser: PLAY for PPIE at Harvest Park

Sunday event features concert, 'music petting zoo'

Two nonprofits are teaming up this weekend to support Pleasanton public schools.

PLAY (short for Promote Leadership for Aspiring Youth) is spearheading the third annual Music Showcase Concert on Sunday at Harvest Park Middle School to raise funds for the Pleasanton Partnerships in Education (PPIE) Foundation.

The multicultural music showcase will begin at 5 p.m. with an "instrument petting zoo" sponsored by Ingram & Brauns Musik Shoppe to give curious children of all ages a hands-on experience with violin, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, flute, clarinet, bell, snare drum and more.

The concert will follow from 6:30-8:30 p.m., featuring students from Northern California and state honor bands.

Tickets for the fundraising event cost $15, with all proceeds going to PPIE. For more information, visit
