Weigel's Stores Donation to Joy of Music School



Weigel’s Stores, Inc. donated twelve brand-new violins to the Joy of Music School. Former piano instructor and current Weigel’s employee, Greg Adkins, recommended the School receive a donation from the convenience store chain. Weigel’s purchased the violins from Wilhite Strings in Knoxville and presented them to the Joy of Music School. “We are so grateful to Greg and Weigel’s for this donation!”, said Julie Carter, Director of Music Education. “We receive a lot of gently used instruments, so to have twelve brand-new violins is a big deal for us. Not only are they brand-new, but they are also high quality and absolutely beautiful!” “When Weigel’s contacted me about this donation, the entire staff was excited!”, said Ed Sublett, Volunteer and Program Manager. “They were able to provide us with three different sized violins for our students. Kids grow up fast! We are so thankful we’ll be able to provide the properly sized violin for the students as they grow.”
