Lots of Music & Fun at Our Benefit Concert

On Friday the 13th, Cozmic Pizza was packed with people attending our annual Benefit Concert to support music and art programs at Wellsprings. The room came alive with music when teachers Chanci, Bob, Tyler, and Paul (dubbed Chanci Pants & The Educators) took the stage. What followed were nearly four hours of great music -- rock & roll, rap, and more -- by our students, teachers, and their friends in local bands, Fortune Cookie and Strum Theory, plus teacher Dante and friend Chris, rapper's extraordinaire (Resident Anti-Hero). Other students offered their artistic creations for sale to attendees. And lots of pizza slices were consumed by the enthusiastic (and hungry) crowd of teenagers, parents, and friends of Wellsprings Friends School.

Thank you to all who attended the concert and for your generous donations. You helped us "go over the top" to receive a matching grant of $10,000 by Valentine's Day!
