1st Concert Raised $1,550! 2nd Concert For US & Chinese, Saturday June 28, at Sharon Wilson

Helping others

For those of you who were wondering about Shan Lu's Music From the Heart Concert benefit for Chinese quake victims held at City Hall Plaza on May 21, they raised a total of $1,550! Shan wrote:

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.

Shan Lu sent me a pdf of the Milwaukee Chinese Times newspaper. It was intriguing. Most of it is in Chinese, but there on the front page it states, Brookfield, and then features photos from the concert. Email me if you would like to see it. 

Now Shan is working on another concert. This one:

A "Benefit Concert for China After-quake Rebuild and US Midwest Flood Victims" organized by [the] 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." (Admission: $10)

I don't have any more specifics on it than that. I thought it was interesting that it was for both the Chinese rebuild project and US Midwest Flood Victims though.
