Congrats Jess Garland!
Matthew McConaughey and Wild Turkey teamed up to thank everyday heroes by supporting community-Based music initiatives with a series of $10,000 Donations. Congratulations to Dallas’ Jess Garland on being recognized as a local legend! Understanding the emotional, therapeutic power of music, Jess formed the non-profit Swan Strings, which brings free music lessons to Dallas residents. She is also the Executive Director of another music-centric non-profit, Girls Rock Dallas. For her $10,000 donation, she has selected Deep Ellum 100, an organization that provides financial grants to musicians affected by the pandemic.
