Hi Friends & Family --
Obviously arts education is super important to me. Think of where I'd be without all those years of piano lessons and voice recitals?! I didn't just learn how to read music and wear some awesome ballgowns - my years of music education gave me confidence, the ability to speak (or sing) to a large crowd, and taught me the value of practicing hard, which are all very important life skills!
So I'm super excited that the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) is hosting a fundraiser dedicated to raising money for arts education in schools, in the form of a 24-hour movie marathon. Proceeds from this marathon directly benefit students K—12 through BAM Education’s in- and after-school programs in dance, theater, poetry, film criticism, and more.
Arts education programs have suffered nationally—and are typically the first to go in schools faced with budget cuts. In response, BAM has significantly expanded its education programs to meet an ever-increasing need.
So please consider showing your support for the longevity of arts education, and donate to my fundraising page today! I may even send you a singing telegram as a thank you note!
