Students at Charles Darwin Elementary School on Chicago's Northwest Side got a big surprise Thursday.

The school received $30,000 worth of band instruments.

Tom Higgenson, the lead singer of the Chicago-based band Plain White T's, helped spring the surprise.

VH1's "Save the Music Foundation" and Houlihan's restaurants made this happen.
