Music From the Heart Raised Over $1,500!

Thanks for the message you sent me last week and sorry for not being able to get back to you earlier. I have been trying to find a few pictures of the concert from our friends (they took the pictures for us that day). I will forward you two of the pictures in another message. Attached please find a pdf file of the report of the Music from the Heart in Milwaukee Chinese Times. There are some English names & numbers and I am sure you will be able to "read" the report, just kidding.
The concert went very well, we raised $1442.00 on May 31. We had 23 programs in all, 21 people (one adult and 20 kids) performed, 15 out of the 20 kids were from Swanson Elementary School. Over a hundred people came and participated the event. We had a reception for the kids and our silent auction and raffle also went well. With the few checks we received after the concert and the total amount came to $1550.00.
Right now, we are working on another fund raising event "Benefit Concert for China After-quake Rebuild and US Midwest Flood Victims" organized by Milwaukee Chinese Community Center which will be held on this Saturday, June 28 at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center (7:00 - 9:00 PM). I am part of the preparation team and the other three members of my family will be performing at Benefit Concert.
Thanks again for all your help!
Have a wonderful summer.
