The Alyssa Alvin Foundation for Hope (AAFH) held its 1st Music Night at the Ronald McDonald House in Winfield. The children staying at this house are either being treated at Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield or the Proton Therapy Center in Warrenville, IL.
There were 4 volunteers from Geneva High School Tri-M Music Honor Society who came to represent the AAFH. They were Ian Dixon (saxophone), Erin Green (viola), Kayla Mickelsen (piano) and Charles Stuedemann (trumpet).
Children between the ages of 2 and 17 attended the Music Night and received one on one basic music instruction on each musical instrument.
Once they checked out all the instruments, the children received their own brand new kazoo! They enjoyed the evening so much that two of the young people (11 year old boy and 17 year old girl) said they were going to go onto the AAFH website to submit a Gift Request! One of the Gift Requests was submitted by Manuel and we will be presenting him a Casio portable keyboard!
