SAVE $10 for BYI! Baltimore Youth Initiative Fundraiser

Update posted by Geri Peak On Aug 16, 2013

Judith, thank you and everyone who is making donations to honor our sister-mom and education change leader, Claire Dorsey.  What a wonderful idea to ask your friends to make donations in your honor for your birthday (I should have thought of that).  Since it is still August, I think I will encourage people to do the same.  

Judith, we appreciate your generous spirit and your faith in our collecitve work to transform high school education.

And thanks to all the off-line contributors.  I'm updating based on what I know we have in hand and will continue to do so!

Now that we have over $100 people will begin to see us in their search of education programs on the site.

To thank you for your commitment to our program, our students will come to your place of work or other gathering place near Baltimore to perform a few tunes in your honor. This could be a great gift to share with seniors or have us come out to a school or rec center.

A true sacrifice of resources deserves a big gift. We will come out and present a full program at a venue of your choosing, sharing a sampling of our artistic talents.Because a quality concert takes some preparation, we must limit these to five per calendar year.
