Music and the Arts are so very important. I am happy to have the opportunity to share my quilted art, possibly make someone smile, inspire and help raise funds for Youth Music Illinois.
One of my latest creations: an exclusive texture themed quilted ball will be available at the silent auction for upcoming Youth Music Illinois - A Musical Masquerade.
Youth Music Illinois provides children in our local community with life-impacting experiences. The program goals are to stimulate educationally, develop musically, and shape students into community-supporting citizens.
The benefit fundraiser they have each Spring helps to raise funds and awareness of their mission. This year the theme is A Musical Masquerade - exploring the beauty and musical importance of masquerades. The event is Friday, March 1, 2019 at the Life Together Center in Peoria.
A Musical Masquerade features a variety of exciting activities including a silent auction, (look for Really Design, and bid high 😊,) raffles, wine & craft beer tasting by Hy-Vee Sheridan Village, and performances by the Youth Music Illinois student musicians. Catering by A Matter of Taste.
Their goal is to raise $20,000 this year, which will go to support orchestral and educational programs for student musicians throughout Central Illinois. I am happy to be a part of this event by donating to the Silent Auction. For more info see - YouthMusicIllinois.org
