The focus of The Raven Project is supporting young, female musicians and artists in leaving their nests, spreading their wings and expressing themselves creatively. Youth will be selected from the community based on desire and financial need to receive gift certificates to purchase musical instruments and art supplies from local area businesses and sponsors. This giveaway ties in directly to the mission of The Raven Project.
