Pennzoil Saves Music in Public Schools

NEW YORK — The VH1 Save The Music Foundation and Pennzoil will join forces to help restore instrumental music programs in our nation's public schools through the "Play The Music. Save The Music" Campaign. And, consumers can benefit, too. By purchasing any Pennzoil(R) oil change from participating installers, consumers can receive up to 46 free music downloads* plus up to a $15 service certificate back by mail. The promotion runs from Sept. 4 through Dec. 6, 2009.

As part of the campaign, Pennzoil will donate $60,000 to the VH1 Save The Music Foundation, which has provided $43 million worth of new musical instruments to more than 1,600 public schools across the country since its inception in 1997.

"We are incredibly honored to have Pennzoil contribute to the Foundation," said Executive Director of the VH1 Save The Music Foundation Paul Cothran. "With their help, we will be able to continue to raise awareness about the importance of a musical education in a child's life, and ensure that additional children have access to the benefits of music study."

The money donated by Pennzoil will provide selected schools with complete instrumental music programs.

"We are proud to work with the VH1 Save The Music Foundation and help raise awareness for this important cause," Patty Lanning, Installed Channel Marketing Team Lead said. "The Pennzoil(R) 'Play the Music. Save the Music.' campaign allows drivers to receive free music with their Pennzoil oil change, while Pennzoil helps save music programs in public schools."

With budget cuts across the nation, the private sector is stepping up to save public school programs. Putting their money where their mouth is, Pennzoil saw a need that they were passionate about and filled that need. It's inspiring to see a company willingly fill one of the many growing gaps in funding that states currently face.
