For my birthday this year I would like to ask that instead of gifts to me, that my friends and family consider a donation in any amount to my organization, Arts Services Initiative of WNY (ASI).
For those of you who know me well - I've worked tirelessly to build ASI from the ground up in just these past 6 years. I'm really proud of how we can support the WNY arts and cultural community, give funding to artists and arts projects, and help professionalize the arts sector through public programs. From music, to visual arts, to dance, to theater, to any artistic discipline and to any individual or organization that strives to bring art to the forefront of our lives - ASI works with all of them and I interact with all of them on a daily basis.
I love what I do, I love the arts, and I am so passionate about the lives we are able to impact with our services.
Will you join me in supporting my love and passion - $1, $15, $50 -- it all helps as we are a non-profit striving to do good on behalf of the arts??!!
