Help send Drake to the Conservatory program!
Organized by: Debbi Powell
May 07, 2016
Drake has had an interest in the performing arts since he was a very young child. His participation in his high school Theater and Drama program have made very positive impacts on his life and have helped him overcome struggles with anxiety and depression. We've watched him transform from a bullied, timid boy to a confident, mature and kind young man due to his involvement in the performing arts. His goal is to one day attend college in New York City or Los Angeles to purse his dream career in theater. In the meantime, he has been selected to participate in a two week Summer Conservatory program at a performing arts college with campuses in both cities.
Unfortunately, the cost of the program is out of our reach at this time due to other recent unforeseen expenses that have all come in short succession. (vet bills, car expenses, medical expenses, etc). As his parents, we are struggling with the fact that we may not be able to send him on this trip that would mean so much to him and his lifelong goals. We are setting up a fundraiser for those who have asked to assist and anyone else who chooses to do so.
We realize there are many others in the world that have greater and more serious needs than this and we certainly hope that people will first support them and assist if possible. If you are also able to donate to our son's cause, we are extremely grateful for your kindness and generosity.
Thank your for taking the time to read this, we are so proud of our boy!! Doug & Debbi
P.S. For local friends and family, he is looking to earn money doing work for you. Contact us if you are interested!
