2016 Campaign Results

2017 fundraising campaign results

Dec. 11, 2016

Dear Friends and Supporters,

Our annual fundraising campaign ends this weekend and we are pleased to announce a 73% improvement over last year's results. We received $8,202.00 in donations, including $5,185 in checks and $3,017 online. In addition, some have committed to a monthly support of $200, for an annual total of $2400, bringing the result for 2017 to $ 10,602, an improvement of nearly $4,500 over last year's. This is not quite enough to meet all our needs but it secures the fundamentals.

One thing that helped tremendously was that a great flautist, Mrs. Jayn Rosenfeld-Siegel and her husband Jerrold Siegel, cordially opened their home to us for a salon event, giving us the opportunity to present our project to their friends and they were moved so that evening we directly and indirectly inspired contributions of more than $5,500.

Our hosts were charming and delighted with the evening and we were too. It went so well that we are offering to present this cultural / philanthropic event in your home. You would invite your friends and relations and we would make a live flute demonstration and present the project’s story on-screen in photos, videos and music.

Throughout the year, we will continue to seek opportunities to make this presentation. If you are interested in hosting it, please contact us at

We thank you, dear friends and supporters, for your generosity. Thanks to you, we can face the coming year with optimism and confidence. We will keep you informed of new developments.

Best wishes for the Holidays and a Happy New Year.

Sylvain Leroux
