Growing up, I did not have alot of expendable income so the idea of attending the arts seemed so impossible to me; luckily as a working HR professional I have overcome that challenge of affording a ticket to enjoy the thrill and beauty of creative expression...however, I wanted to try and help those less fortunate in a similar challenge I had once faced so when I found Art-Reach as a volunteer in 2003 I discovered an amazing organizaiton and solution partner for accessibility challenges faced by diverse audiences in the Delaware Valley. Since starting as an event fundraiser and organizer, I have joined the Board of Directors and proudly participated as well as steered decisions that have positively impacted tens of thousands of individuals as well as enriched my own arts-passionate soul. The staff of Art-Reach, especially the Executive Director Michael Norris, are great examples of commitment and effectiveness with their roles in the organization that today is financially and operationally strong and growing. I encourage anyone interested in ensuring that status remains true to check out www.art-reach.org and explore how you, or someone you know, would be of service or benefit from connecting with this impressive group.
