LEARN Benefit Concert 2018

The LEARN Benefit Concert was started in 2012 by Emelia Suljic when she was a freshman in high school. Her goal was to help fund the absent music programs for the children enrolled in the LEARN Charter Schools of Chicago. After six years of this annual concert, the schools now have music programs at seven of their ten campuses. Three years ago, the Co-Chair role was passed down to Lily Piekos, Gracie Nayman, and Frankie Nayman when Emelia went off to college. They raised $16,000 in support of the 2016 Benefit Concert and $15,000 in support of the 2017 LEARN Benefit Concert. Lily Piekos is now blossoming at Pepperdine as Gracie, Frankie, and Sophia Feinerman Co-Chair this year. Their 2018 goal is $18,000. Please attend the concert this year is at 7:30pm on April 21st at Nichols Hall in Evanston, Illinois! Music education is essential to every child's life. It is a magical gift everyone deserves. Please help give this gift by donating to this GoFundMe campaign! Thank you for your tremendous support of the children at LEARN and their musical exposure.
