Chophouse helps ACMF change young lives.
The Australian Children’s Music Foundation (ACMF) is a charity that provides free music education and instruments to disadvantaged and Indigenous children, and youth at risk all over Australia.
Don Spencer OAM established the ACMF in 2002 with the vision of changing young lives through music. Research proves that participation in music inspires creativity and imagination which in turn positively impacts a child's mental health and development.
More than 75% of public schools in Australia do not have funds for a music teacher or instruments. The ACMF passionately believes no child should be deprived of access to a music education. Music should be a right not a privilege!
The Chophouse supports the ACMF by raising funds specifically for the ACMF music program at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Primary School in Waterloo. All 130 students enrolled at this inner city Sydney school can now read music and regularly play percussion thanks to the ACMF.
Every Wednesday and Saturday evening The Chophouse provides live music so guests can “Graze & Groove”. As part of our ongoing support for ACMF, we are asking for a $1 per person donation on every table to help raise funds, and so far our guests have helped us raised over $25,000!
We’re looking forward to continuing our live music “Graze & Groove” nights throughout 2013 and continuing to help the ACMF change young lives through music.
