Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts “Beyond the Classroom Performance Series”Is Chosen Charity
for our Nov. 8 100+ WWC Meeting
100+ Women Who Care MKE Metro West
The Sharon Lynne Wilson Center with their “Beyond the Classroom Performance Series” is our chosen charity for November. They have a wonderful program to help students to become engaged in the arts.
Peter Mol, Director of Education at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the Arts presented an interesting talk about this wonderful program. The Wilson Center’s Tax EIN number is 39-1787648.
Our support of Wilson’s “Beyond the Classroom Performance Series” will definitely meet our goal of making a difference in our communities by supporting our local students in learning through the arts. In past seasons, groups in this series included Third Coast Percussion, Florentine Opera, and the Theatre Heroes” production of the children’s book The Gruffalo. We will be helping students in underserved schools in Waukesha ad Milwaukee to become engaged in the arts. According to a 2012 survey, low-income students who are highly engaged in the arts are more than twice as likely to graduate college as their peers with no arts education
We also heard from representatives from St. Vincent de Paul. Peggy West-Schroder spoke of how they are using the funds we provided in our last meeting in July to continue the St. Vincent de Paul Meal Program that has provided hot nutritious meals to children and adults in our Milwaukee community.
