RAISE THE BAR

 

In April 2020, Matt created "Raise the Bar," a charity livestream piano bar series that raises funds for organizations and individuals bearing heavy financial burden due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The first 2-month part of series, streaming on Facebook Live, raised thousands of dollars for 9 organizations throughout the United States. The following organizations were beneficiaries of Raise the Bar livestreams:
