Win a new Subaru or a new Korg MS-20 Mini synth: The Bob Moog Foundation and Prestige Subaru announce raffle to benefit Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool

Updated Sept. 12, 2014: Our winners

Please join us in congratulating the winners of our Road to Innovation raffle! Our grand prize winner of a Korg MS-20 Mini is Nancy Nehls Nelson (who purchased the ticket for her brother, composer Tommy Nehls)!

The winner of a Dubreq Stylophone S2 is Simon Woodrup. The winner of the Sample Moog virtual synth anthology is K.D. Forsha. The winner of a signed copy of “The Synthesizer” by Mark Vail is Adam Embree. We were not able to award the Subaru, as ticket sales did not meet the amount needed for us to award that prize.

THANK YOU and BIG MOOG LOVE to Prestige Subaru, Korg, Dubreq, IK Multimedia and Mark Vail for their generosity, and to all of you, our collaborators and partners in changing children’s lives with music, technology and science education. We can’t wait to show you what we plan to do for kids with these raffle funds!

Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool (DBSS) is a 10-week STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum developed by the Foundation for the purpose of teaching children the science of sound through the magic of music. DBSS is currently serving over 1,000 second grade students in 55 classrooms throughout Western North Carolina in Asheville City Schools, Buncombe County Schools, and Madison County Schools.

Learn more about the SoundSchool here:

The Foundation aims to expand DBSS into additional counties in Western North Carolina and beyond in the coming year. The funding raised from the raffle will be used for that expansion.

Michelle Begnino, Assistant Curriculum Director for Madison County Schools, reflects on efficacy of DBSS in her district: “We are so pleased with the experience our children and teachers had working with Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool. Our children radiate when talking about the DBSS lessons. As we focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) throughout our district, this curriculum gives teachers the chance to implement lessons that have the rigor and the support to be successful! We have tremendously bright children in our system of high poverty, and DBSS gives our children wonderful, hands-on learning opportunities and a chance to shine.”

“We’re proud to be able to support the Bob Moog Foundation’s educational initiative, Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool,” added Prestige Subaru’s Tony Pelle. “Their efforts in encouraging technology and the arts have already made a tremendous difference in these students’ lives, and we’d love to see more children benefit from programs like these.”

Prestige Subaru is Asheville’s premier Subaru dealership, priding itself on quality cars and strong customer service. It has provided philanthropic funding throughout the region for many years, and has benefited organizations such as the Asheville Humane Society, the American Cancer Society, Veterans Helping Veterans, and many more.
