“Join us on Thursday, April 25, 2024, from 6-9 pm at Venue 142 in DeLand. This is a beautiful night to come together for hors d’oeuvres, dinner, specialty cocktails, an open bar, jazz music, a silent auction, and special guest speakers all to benefit Volusia County student scholarships, and suicide prevention in our community. This event sold out last year, so reserve your seats now at Eventbrite with the button below!

The Matt Buth Foundation

The Foundation was established to continue Matt’s love of music, and his caring spirit. We promise to make sure future Band students at DHS know how he always lent a helping hand, always had a smile, how he played every instrument he laid his hands on, and that he believed the world was made better with music.
