Since, we couldn't fit all of the info about the new trust in the photo gallery section, we decided to break it down in this blog.
Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young started the foundation to help kids with physical, emotional and financial challenges. Steve and Barb Young hosted the gala for VIPs and put tons of work into raising money for the new project.
The new trust is in memory of Sophie Barton, a local singer-songwriter who volunteered regularly with Primary Children's Hospital, and will fund music therapy rooms called Sophie's Places at hospitals starting with Primary Children's in SLC. More than $150,000 has already been raised for the project.
"We honor Sophie's life and commitment to music through the creation of Sophie's Trust," said Steve Young in a recent press release. "We are so grateful for the generosity of the amazingly talented Brian Regan to help us celebrate Sophie's life and this important new project for Forever Young, and we hope people will catch the vision and help us bring the healing power of music to hospitals across the country and around the world."
