About Drumming Up Hope Foundation:
Drumming Up Hope is a nonprofit organization formed by drummers with the purpose of gathering to lend support to charitable organizations we admire, and to promote music education and brotherhood amongst local and regional drummers and musicians of all ages.

From Moss West on Fb, 5/16/17: PLEASE HELP! I am playing drums at the Drumming Up Hope world record thing again this year. We are supposed to be raising money for the St Jude’s Children’s Clinic. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to ask… “Would anyone – anyone at all – be willing to donate to the ST. JUDE’S CHILDREN’S CLINIC?” We raised over 5 grand last year and would like to beat our record by donating even MORE THIS year! If you might be interested in being a part of helping us out, PLEASE feel free to instant message me! That way even YOU could be a part of our world record! Thank you kindly!
We’re asking COMBO members to come out and either participate or donate. That would be AWESOME! Our Vice-President Annette Cannon will be drumming for one hour from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday night. Come out and throw cream pies at her to see if she misses a beat.:-)
Please feel free to contact either Kelly Ireland (VP and Director of Operations), Tim Elliott
(President & CEO), or me with any questions. We would love to work with you!
