The Appalachian Mountains region in the USA is recognized the world over as the birthplace of Bluegrass, a form of traditional folk music. When Asheville residents Ron Clearfield and his wife, Rachel, organized a local fundraising initiative in support of TPRF, they naturally placed music at the heart of their event.
Ron, a professional cellist, conductor, and composer, and Rachel, a talented artist, have been part of the Asheville community for over twenty years. The June Jamboree was their fourth annual fundraiser in support of the Foundation.
For most of us, the mere mention of “Paris” immediately conjures up an image of a city full of sophistication and a sparkling nightlife.
Michel and Connie, two friends of TPRF, wanted to create a fundraising event for the Foundation that captured the spirit of Paris.
Held outdoors on Saturday, March 26 in the food court of a Lima shopping center, the event featured live music and videos introducing the humanitarian work of TPRF to an audience of 120 people. According to Maritza Espinoza, one of the volunteers, the audience was comprised primarily of families hearing about TPRF for the first time.
