The 1st annual Maintain Your Brain Battle of the Bands was held March 23 on the front lawn of Broughton High School to increase awareness of brain health issues including stroke, dementia and concussion. The event raised over $21,000 for the Triangle Aphasia Project. Attended by over 300 people, the community event featured the musical talent of six student bands from nine Wake County High Schools. Grand prize winner, The Buzzards Band from Holly Springs High School, will open for a headliner at Lincoln Theatre. Topic-related booths were on hand to promote brain health resources in the Triangle.
