I was honored to attend the inaugural fundraising breakfast for the Akilah DaSilva Foundation.  Akilah was one of the victims of the Waffle House shooting.  His mother and family have done an extraordinary job in creating a non-profit organization in his memory to fight gun violence and provide scholarships to students.

I had the grand opportunity to be an MC along with District 32 CM Joy Styles in supporting Cremona Strings, which was founded to provide affordable string music lessons, rehearsals, training, education, performances, consultations, and advocacy.  They do a great job and it was so cool to see the positive impact this music education non-profit has on student’s lives.
