Review for NAT KING COLE GENERATION HOPE INC, Boca Raton, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'd been wanting to do something relevant to nurture the spirits of children who have little hope or none at all. When I was Executive Director of the South Florida Inner-City Games, I experienced first-hand the extraordinary difference made when children were exposed to the arts and sports. Now I live in Chicago but remain a supporter of NKCGH. What word comes to mind when I think of my experiences with this organization? Integrity. I believe the word 'integrity' to be synonymous with NKCGH. Founded by the twin daughters of Nat and Maria Cole, Timolin & Casey Cole are hands-on professionals. NKCGH has impacted thousands of children in Florida who attend schools with eliminated, limited and/or threatened music education programs.: "children who have the greatest need and fewest resources."
The Cole twins intimately understand the positive importance of music education in the shaping of humanity. NKCGH serves its mission through providing grants, instruments and clinics The annual concert in March is a major fundraiser with several other fundraisers held throughout the year. Natalie Cole was the featured performer at the 2013 NKCGH annual concert.
I am thrilled to be a part of NKCGH.
