As round one of the Chase Community Giving program drew to a close, DCI and several other drum corps and related groups became $25,000 richer (or less poor?). The top 100 groups at midnight last night will each receive $25,000 from JP Morgan Chase Bank and will move on to round two, vying for their shot at winning $500,000. Round two voting begins on May 19th, 2011.

$500,000 up for grabs in round two
Round one was exhausting. If you’re anything like us, your Facebook news feed was probably drowning in “Please vote!” statuses and shares too.
Tell you what―take a break. Take two weeks off from being inundated with voting requests. You deserve it. But don’t get too comfortable. Round two voting begins Thursday, May 19th.
