Hello, everyone! Happy Halloween to you. It has been a wonderful week for me and my organization, because we are still smiling from last weekend when many of you came to my 19th Annual Scholarship Black & Gold Ball. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support, donations and contributions. It was a successful event. We had the pleasure of given seven deserving, talented and gifted children music scholarships and we honored seven veteran, professional musicians with gifts of citations and their flowers of appreciation. For those of you who were unable to support me this year, maybe next year. We are still asking for donations for the children.
