RENO, Nev. (KOLO) -The Dolan Auto Group donated $100,000 to Nevada schools this year and $50,000 of it went to the Carson City School District.

It’s part of the Dolan Class Project the business does each year. Usually, it gives $60,000 statewide but increased that to $100,000 this year.

Eight out of 10 Carson City schools were awarded money, the school district said in a statement.

Nicole Witkowski’s fifth-grade band at Fritsch Elementary School received the grand prize of $10,000. That money will provide enough instruments for all fifth graders to have an equal opportunity to participate in band and allows them to participate in the annual Band-o-Rama concert in celebration of Music in Our Schools Month, the school district said.

Some of the money will be donated to Holiday with a Hero, supporting local law enforcement’s efforts to ensure every child has a happy holiday.
