HELLO TAP COMMUNITY,
I wanted to let you know of a great program here in NYC and of an opportunity for your contribution to make a difference on the continuing education of tap for all ages...My 4 year-old daughter Kaia would not have been able to participate in this program for the past two years without the help of a Gregory Hines Scholarship and I know of many others who directly benefit as well. They just had a wonderful 1st year concert performance up at Symphony Space, and seeing so many happy kids being able to perform with ease just simply confirmed how much of an asset their program is to NYC youth and teens.
They have the Spring Gala Benefit coming up on May 20th. Tickets are $250 each and they usually have an entertaining evening planned full of special guests and of course performances by their Youth Ensemble. If you'd like to contribute by attending this gala event, please call 646-230-9564 for your invitation.
There has been an offer to match any donation that is made after the minimum of $100,000 has been reached for up to $30,000 total. Since I know the direct impact this has on the community here in NY, I wanted to take the time and ask you to consider your tax donations for this year by sending your contribution of any amount to:
American Tap Dance Foundation
18 West 27th Street 6th Floor
New York, NY 10001
Thanks again for your attention in this matter.
