I’m Rekha Skantharaja, a community member, patron, and board director for Luther Burbank Center for the Arts. As we head into our most critical fundraising event of the year, I’m here to tell you my LBC story.
It was almost 5 years ago that I was invited as a guest to attend the Art of Dessert. I witnessed the performance of the Mariachi Ensemble. It was during this performance that I was deeply moved and urgently called to get involved. Science has proven that performing in visual arts ignites pathways in the brain that lead to better social and emotional development. Kids that consistently interact with the arts are more attentive and perform better in math and science.
The LBC isn’t only a community treasure as a performing arts venue; behind the scenes we reach 50,000 kids in 7 Bay Area counties. With your donation we will continue to give these kids the chance to become not simply good performers today, but great people tomorrow.
Just $100 allows a family to attend a show together or buys a child an instrument; just $250 provides a
student access to a life-changing master class; $1,000 will provide 6 teachers access to the tools to bring their lessons to life through the power of the arts. Donate now and join us virtually on April 17 for amazing performances, exciting auction items, and to learn more about how the LBC is changing our world. Thank you. Click here for Rekha’s full story.
