Indoor is here, The Cadets are coming, marching band is around the corner!

Every day, supporters of Youth Education in the Arts let us know how dear and cherished our programs are to them. The Cadets, the US Scholastic Band Association and the Urban Arts Center of the Lehigh Valley flourished in 2010, much in response to the outpouring of financial support shown by our loyal alumni and friends. 

More than 750 donors gave to The Cadets during four campaigns in 2010, each and every contribution helping to bring an extraordinary and life-changing experience to the lives of 150 young men and women. We have folks who gave to the holiday fund, the summer annual campaign, and even special solicitations intended to take Hopkins off line for a few days! We had individuals give to the repair of a bus, we have those who contribute food and we have many, many, and many who give of their time and expertise to assist the cause.

"These are tough times, but, as the books close on 2010, it looks like we have a few extra dollars in the coffers. That miracle is due to our friends who at some point, made a donation to the cause of magnificence in youth,” George Hopkins, CEO of Youth Education in the Arts, and the director of the Cadets since 1983 exclaimed! “We are clear that we could not have these programs without you. All of the greatest performers in the world and the greatest cause in the world do not matter … unless there are funds to pay the staff and put fuel in the gas tank!” 

“We thank you!  I thank you!”  

Thanks to your passion and love for the cause, we move forward into 2011 – a year that promises to be special in every way!
