Kids helping kids through the arts! This year's event will be June 1, 2013. This year, funds raised will benefit "WE CAN Pediatric Brain Tumor Network."
Three years ago, several young musicians formed "The Young Artists Alliance" - a group of kids led by Alex and Veronica Mansour who got together to perform a special benefit concert at the Pasadena Conservatory of Music.
Proceeds collected were donated to the American Red Cross for the Haitian Relief effort. The following year, proceeds went to the Make a Wish Foundation. Last year, proceeds went to the Pasadena Conservatory of Music's need-based music scholarship fund.
This year, the organization is entirely student run as an official club at Chaminade High School!
This year, proceeds will benefit WE CAN Pediatric Brain Tumor Network.

The above video was from a past benefit concert. Proceeds went directly to the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Greater Los Angeles.
This year's event...
This year's event will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at the Tutor Family Center for the Performing Arts at Chaminade High School at 3:00 p.m.
All net proceeds from the event will be donated to the WE CAN Pediatric Brain Tumor Network. "We Can" offers information and emotional support to families whose children have brain tumors. WE CAN hosts a camp every fall designed to meet the ongoing challenges faced by families with a child diagnosed with a brain tumor. It costs about $200 to send child to this annual camp and about $1000 for a family.
