I am also a single mom who has an autistic son, Sebastian, and Equine Assisted Therapies has been an amazing organization thats offered 2 years of scholarship for Sebastian to take horse therapy. I am so grateful as to what these benefits of therapy have done for my son while continuing his love of working with horses. This benefit concert is a thank you to them and to hopefully raise money to provide more scholarships to children and young adults who are in need of this wonderful therapy. We need to be a voice for those that cannot speak for themselves. Our concert is set to have over 7 faculty members from Saint Andrews, students, wine and cheese reception, silent auction and a meet and greet. For this concert and Orlando album we will are honored to have Gary Mayone, a pianist who has played with Herbie Hancock and Jaco Pastorius and is on 50 international albums.
SEE YOU THERE!
