Performance at 3pm PST / 6 EST sharp: youtube.com/ImagoMusicFestival (asl accessible)
Welcome to my fundraising page!
You may already know me as an artist, performer, storyteller and an educator at Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. I am taking my mission to connect with others through meaningful experiences into songwriting.
On Saturday, March 20th at 3 pm PST, I will perform at Imago Music Festival, a live streaming online festival to benefit United Friends of the Children (UFC), an incredible organization that supports current and former foster youth.
Over 30k foster youth are in L.A. County and my family gained a beloved member through foster care. Recently I was introduced to some residents and staff of UFC who shared the meaning they are able to build in their lives through its programs. I'm struck by just how many people come up through the program to lead vibrant, sustaining lives.
Please help me raise $800 in support of UFC’s life assistance programs. Even if you cannot attend the performance – which is free – this is a great opportunity to help me make a year-long impact on the work that United Friends of the Children does to uplift current and former foster youth.
All are welcome to join and support. Friends, family, colleagues, pets too. The performance on March 20th streams at: youtube.com/ImagoMusicFestival. Although I won't be able to see you, I hope to know you’re there.
