Transforming how kids view Chinese dance and culture

Last year, a generous community transformed how more than 400 children viewed Chinese culture and arts by allowing them to attend CAAM CDT’s award-winning school matinee. Cullen’s favorite dance was the one “with the blue glowy ladies,” and Abby wondered how the dancers made it all work. Selina wanted to be like us; Andrew and Loti simply wrote, “I love you.” Afterward, more than 100 children sent us drawings, notes, and thank-you cards.

We know that attending even a single school matinee can transform young people’s lives and lead them into a world of friendship, support, and activity. Last year, donations totaling $3,000 allowed us to bring more than 400 low-income children to the school matinee. This year, almost 1,000 children from low income families would like to attend the school matinee, and many of them will also require bus fare.
 
Kids attend CAAM CDT’s school matinee because, together, we support them. Very simply, your gift in any amount allows more children to come to the school show. Currently, there are 340 students without funding to the 2019 School Matinee, Tears of the Dragon, Leaves of the Tea. For the price of 2 venti lattes, you can sponsor one child’s ticket to the School Matinee.  For 4 venti lattes, you can cover the cost of their ticket and their bus fare!  Please visit our Facebook Fundraiser and make your donation today!
