(WTVM) - The Columbus Symphony Orchestra has received a pretty big chunk of money that would help it continue its educational mission.
On Friday afternoon, the Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens gave the orchestra $30,000.
The check presentation happened during an educational event hosted by the CSO at E.A. White Elementary School in Fort Benning.
Throughout the year, the CSO visits area schools to educate and introduce children to music.
More than 12,000 children have had access to this experience through the orchestra's "Up Close Program."
