Private event at Ellyn & Ray Stevenson's home
January 26

The Stevenson’s home is lovely, the attendees enjoyed great food by the Taco Shack, and caterer Judy Beckman. Attendees listened to a private performance by Terry Barber (countertenor and Executive Director and Founder of A4AC), and two of our most gifted young artists, Savanna Webber (a soprano) and Timothy Nicholas (a violinist), both of whom spoke about their involvement in our programs.  And, we were able to fulfill our goal of raising $25,000 for a matching grant given by an anonymous foundation.

Thank you again, Ellyn and Ray!
