Voices of a Generation Telethon



Educational Arts Society (EAS), a 501 c 3 nonprofit, strives to “create a smile with music” on the face of a kid just like this little guy.  He holds a saxophone given to him by those who reached out to Educational Arts Society for talented, disciplined and responsible children like Jesse with donations and sponsorships.   


For three years, the organization holds Voices of a Generation Telethon seeking donations to fulfill its mission of donating FREE instruments and FREE lessons to children.  During the Christmas Gift Event in 2018, EAS gave ten (10) instruments to children.  The 2019 Telethon will focus on FREE lessons.  For a child to study privately with a professional musician and take two (2) lessons per month, it takes $600 per year.   


Society realizes it takes a community to raise a child and EAS President Janice Slappy takes that message to heart…she is funding those two (2) lessons for Jesse.
