The Rainey Institute has been providing an arts education for children in Cleveland, Ohio for 105 years - in the same house. I had the fortune of participating in the ground breaking ceremony for its new green building, to be constructed by next summer. This was a great day as it was 14 years in the making and many people were instrumental in seeing that children of all backgrounds have an opportunity to be exposed to the beauty and experience of various art forms. Rainey works withkids in all age ranges, from the cutest pre-schoolers to the most charming teens. Art, music, dance and leadership skills are taught and sometimes, the teachers are the best role models some of the children have in their lives. I'm proud to be a donor (very small) and part of history. Donations are still being accepted, click here to learn more about Rainey and donor opportunities.
