BENEFITING: BEL CANTO PERFORMING ARTS SOCIETY
The Bel Canto Performing Arts Society Presents
A SPECIAL CAUSE NEEDING YOUR SUPPORT THIS SEASON
MILITARY FAMILY MUSIC ENRICHMENT FUND
for military family residents of the VA Puget Sound Fisher House, Seattle, WA
The Bel Canto Performing Arts Society knows that music brings joy, provides therapeutic distraction from care, and can actually heal. That’s why we created the Music Enrichment Grant Fund. The grants will be administered by the VA Puget Sound Fisher House and will bring Fisher residents like little Fola (pictured above) a bit of joy and peace of mind in the face of adversity. They will be awarded to eligible family members from among the thousands who have stayed or will stay at the Fisher House while their loved ones undergo treatment in the VA Puget Sound Healthcare System.
These families are under constant stress as they worry over and support their military parent or sibling receiving treatment. The Fisher House provides them comfortable and safe temporary lodging, meals and emotional support, all within walking distance of the VA Puget Sound medical facility. Even so, having a loved-one hospitalized can be intense, emotionally draining and sometimes overwhelming. A major portion of every donation will go toward this important fund that can be used for music lessons, music education, the purchase of new or used instruments, and other music-related opportunities.
