2018 Recital Funds Raised Report

We are pleased to announce, that thanks to all of the donations and money raised through tickets sales and the chinese auction, we were able to raise enough money to make a much needed donation to the Bridgeton Salvation Army Food Pantry!  They greatly appreciated the donation, as this past year it has been hard to keep up with the demand in our community.

We also were able to start our Hardship Fund!  I am so excited to see this get started.  Knowing how important music is for each individual, it can be heart breaking to watch a promising young student cry when they find out they can't take lessons due to a sudden financial hardship.  Many times never to return to lessons again. I don't want to see kids miss out due to circumstances out of their control.

This year we started our Hardship Fund to help work with families when times are tight, they lose a job, or face other hard times.Temporarily buffering the cost of lessons and giving their kids something to smile about.

Thanks to all who made this possible by participating in our Chinese Auction and attending the 2018 Recital.
