3rd Degree Burns, a rock ‘n roll project and band comprised of talented Lapeer County young people, needs your help. The band and Young Musicians Community, the non-profit organization that funds them, have been selected to participate in the 2015 Art Van Charity Challenge: a fundraising competition in which organizations supporting children, healthcare and human services compete to raise money for their team. The team raising the most money wins a $75,000 donation from Art Van Furniture for their organization.

The funds would go toward equipment, instruments, sheet music, travel for concerts in the parks, emergency repairs on equipment, equipping much needed additional rooms with duplicate equipment and developing their own recording studio and video/photography department.
