St. Elizabeth's School Arts 2013

Support St. Elizabeth's School's Arts Programs!

Help bring more instruments, art supplies, and instruction to children.

The Challenge:

A year ago, Ramsay Stabler set out to start a Strings Music Program at St. Elizabeth’s School. His first Challenge went spectacularly, exceeding its goal in about 24 hours. As a results, the wonderful, diverse and exceptional students of St. Elizabeth’s School got 20 violins, and an amazing violin instructor. The fundraiser even helped SES purchase a bevy of Orff Instruments for its other music classes!

This year, Ramsay is back with a new goal. Help him raise $10,000 for St. Elizabeth’s School to retain phenomenal, renowned violin instructor Cynthia Katsarelis for another year ($6000) and to buy African and other exotic drums for the music program ($2000). The final $2000 will go toward purchasing kiln and ceramics materials, a large paper printer, a camera for the art room, and sewing machines for St. Elizabeth’s School’s arts programs.
