Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies 

Oct. 2019

The Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies helps children with special needs discover their abilities.  The Kids Center often plays music to relax patients before sessions.  They provide physical, occupational, and speech therapies along with nutrition counseling.   This is a charity that I have contributed to for several years and I am thrilled to be performing at their fundraising gala in October.

Thank you to everyone who came to the Kids Center Gala! We completely beat our target of $600 by raising $4,087 from tips, GoFundMe donations, and the live auction.   My piano playing for an evening was paired with charcuterie trays, wine pairing, and a private dinner for ten.

This library helps provide music therapy throughout the Norton Hospital system.   It was built in honor of Robert Lerman, a Pathologist with a love of music.  Music therapy has changed the lives of so many children and adults, and it is a treatment I completely support.  To learn more about this fund, please click below.

Thanks to everyone's generosity, we not only achieved the goal of $375, but surpassed and doubled the goal by raising $750.  This was enough money to send two kids to Stephen Foster Music Camp!
