Kenny Aronoff and Bill Bachman were featured artists for the Day of Drums on April 25, 2009 in Dallas, GA. The event is a fundraiser for the Jonathan Hick Scholarship Fund. The fund was started by Lessa Hick, Jonathan's mother. The mission of the event is to raise awareness of the "percussive arts" and to honor her son. Jonathan was a high school percussionist who was killed in an automobile accident in 2007. The scholarship is awarded to deserving high school seniors who are going to major in music in college. Lessa plans to continue this event and continue to offer world class artists to the community.
