The Roots of Music


Sungard Higher Education recently presented a check for $30,000 to The Roots of Music, a New Orleans based non-profit created by musician Derrick Tabb. Pinnacle Events was chosen as the DMC to assist Sungard Higher Education with their program and suggested they consider The Roots of Music as it was a perfect fit for the education mission of Sungard Higher Education. The Roots of Music marching band, 125 children strong, opened the Sungard Summit General Session before an audience of 5000 where Cokie Roberts was the celebrated speaker.

Throughout the week, Sungard Higher Education employees and customers donated money for this awe inspiring program and then Sungard Higher Education matched the donation. It is the largest donation produced by the Sungard Summit to date.
