A joint project with the family of A.J. Parker Foster and the Club, in 2012 an annual musical instrument award was established for a youth who has demonstrated a dedication to music, studies and community contribution and who might not otherwise be able to afford the purchase. The project allows for this to be done annually for one student. The instrument is a gift directly to the student.
In 2013, high school student Elizabeth Leon was provided a clarinet toward her dream of performing at Carnegie Hall.
