We're down to the final day of voting for the Pepsi Refresh Project; and, as it stands right now, Raleigh Charter High School's Sustaining Roots Music (SOOTS) is in the money at No. 9. If SOOTS is still in the top-10 by the time voting ends, it will earn a $5,000 grant to go to the work that Music Maker Relief Foundation does, supporting older impoverished blues musicians. So on this Memorial Day, take a moment to vote one last time. Represent!
Vote for SOOTS!
