Serving the Community

I love to incorporate community outreach in each of my performances. Pictured above are the school supplies we collected at one performance for schools in Afghanistan. We have also collected eyeglasses for local Lions Clubs and other materials for various groups. Talk to me about how to make this outreach part of any performance you book.
