Tallahassee, FL - The sound of music is floating through the air in Tallahassee, and folks are tickling the ivories for a good cause!
16 pianos have been donated to PinkPianos.org, a group headed up by Tallahassee City Commissioner Gil Ziffer.
The painted, or draped, pianos will be set up all over Tallahassee for people to sit down and play with the goal of reminding men and women to always take the necessary steps to detect breast cancer.
The pianos were donated earlier this year. One of the pianos donated has a rich history in Tallahassee. It was Ruby Diamond's piano, who was a generous benefactor to FSU and a graduate of the Florida State College for Women.
That piano will be located at Westminster Oaks. The other pianos will be set up in different locations throughout the city from Thanksgiving until Christmas. Anyone who wants to can just walk up and start playing!
