Local band Cowboys in Cardigans will be making a special donation of percussion instruments and musical supply to the Windsor Youth Centre.

The musicians received a $3,000 grant from the City of Windsor's Arts, Culture, and Heritage Fund last year to help them produce a new album.

Cowboys in Cardigans held a release party in December at the Venue Music Hall for the release Platypus, and pledged part of the proceeds from the show will be going to assist a community music program.

“The goal of ACHF is to foster the growth of the local arts, culture, and heritage scene in Windsor,” said Devon Pastorius, who plays guitar for Cowboys in Cardigans. “We figured the best way that we could do that is by helping to give some kids the opportunity to be the next generation of musicians in this city.”

The donation will be made Friday at 5 p.m.
