Education Foundation Bringing the Music of the Beatles to Brownwood Saturday, March 20
Article by: Sara Musgrove
The Brownwood Education Foundation (BEF) actively works to support and invest in the lives of Brownwood ISD’s students. BEF presents an annual event in order to raise funds, and this year’s innovative solution will be a live concert and night at the Lyric Theatre. A Beatles cover band based out of Austin, Texas, The Eggmen, will be the main attraction. There will also be heavy hors d’oeuvre and drinks from local eateries, and a live auction. The Lion’s Pride Supporting Growing Minds benefit concert will be held Saturday, March 20th from 7:00-10:00 PM at Brownwood’s Lyric Theatre.
Austin KVUE News anchor Ron Olivera says of the The Eggmen, “Their music wows. It pleases. It touches your soul. It makes you feel good. The Austin Music Awards have honored The Eggmen with the ‘The Best Cover Band’ award for 11 years.”
The quintessential Beatles tribute band will highlight the food and auction items which have been donated by local sponsors and businesses, such as Wright Asphalt, Texas Bank, and Landmark Life. Auction items include a week at Crystal Beach (TX), a week-long stay at a house in Estes Park by the Roosevelt National Forest, a four-night stay at a Frio River house that sleeps up to twelve people, a Downtown Brownwood package including gift cards from local businesses, a night at the Clark Homestead with shrimp boil or barbecue, and more.
All funds raised will go toward supporting Brownwood ISD students and further enriching their educational experience. “The Foundation has the ability to help make positive impacts in the lives of our students and teachers that are measurable and life-changing,” said Eric Evans, the Brownwood Education Foundation Board Vice President. “Funds will be used in Educational Grants in specific classrooms working with students. A portion of the funds also go to Excellence in Teaching awards at the end of the school year. We make the most impact out of the funds received.” From alternative seating, new supplies, innovative learning kits, and STEM initiatives, Brownwood’s teachers can use the Education Foundation’s funding to create rigorous and superior learning environments. Many teachers and classrooms throughout Brownwood ISD have already been influenced for better from past years.
