BENEFITING: NEW CENTURY CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
EVENT DATE: Mar 19, 2012
Hello Friends and Family,
While I may be a bit partial, I know Alana to be the most caring, compassionate, loving and beautiful (inside and out) person that I have ever met. As you know, music has been a key component in defining Alana. Growing up in a family of professional musicians, she was given informal and formal education about the arts from an early age; she participated in elementary, middle, and high school orchestras as a violinist, learned to play the piano, and took classical and jazz music courses in college. Music has shaped Alana’s life in indelible ways, and she now has combined her love for music with her passion for charitable giving. As of three months ago, she is the new Director of Individual Giving for the New Century Chamber Orchestra.
Alana’s 30th Birthday is coming up in a few weeks. In honor of her milestone birthday, I’d like to help raise support for a cause that means so much to her. I'm asking her friends and family to give what you can. I would like to raise 30 gifts of at least $30 for Alana's 30th Birthday. A gift of any size (and birthday message) will mean the world to Alana. Coupled with offline gifts, I am hoping that we can raise $3,000 in her honor.

Please help honor Alana’s 30th Birthday by giving the Bay Area community the gift that music has given to Alana.
