Heidi Brunk Foundation

Heidi Brunk lived in Oakdale, California as a wife, mother, daughter, music teacher and friend to hundreds, she lost her life tragically in 2008, but her musical enjoyment and passion for teaching lives on in the Heidi Brunk Foundation. Heidi is remembered for her bright smile, beautiful voice, great sense of humor, singing roles in popular local bands, and dedication to musical teachings, friends, family and living life to the fullest.

Created to award students with music scholarships, The Heidi Brunk foundation is a 501 {c){3) organization that raises charitable funds through donations and ticket sales From the Sierra View Music Fest. In its first year in 2008, the Sierra View Music Fest raised thousands for the foundation. In the spring of 2009, Jim Brunk awarded the first scholarship to Michael Alstead of Oakdale at the Oakdale High School Scholarship ceremony. In 2010, the Heidi Brunk foundation awarded 4 scholarships to students from Ripon, Escalon and Oakdale, California.

In 2011, five scholarships with a total value of over $5000 was awarded to students who are continuing their education in music, including three Oakdale students and two students from Modesto schools. This year we’re dedicated to raising even greater funds for scholarships.

Join us for good times, great music and an effort to support deserving students in their music education. For information on sponsorship opportunities, please contact Jim Brunk at (209) 765-5432.
