About CUSA: The Chester Upland School of the Arts (CUSA) is a public school with over 400 students located in the under-resourced community of Chester, Pa. CUSA’s mission is to improve the community and prepare children for success as individuals and as active, responsible citizens through a marriage between arts, dance, and education.
Why: CUSA teachers have been inspiring leaders, at times working with no pay, donating materials, and overcoming obstacles each day. One of the school’s major challenges is the lack of a safe outdoor playground for children to play, be physically active, and release surplus-energy and stress. Among many goals, SIG strives to raise $50,000 in order to rebuild CUSA’s playground before classes start in September 2015.
Who should attend/how: Attendance is open to the entire public. Ticket prices are $30 for a single ticket, and $100 for 4 tickets.
To buy tickets or donate, visit https://www.localevelevents.com/events/details/1119. Every single dollar will benefit CUSA. Donations are 100% tax deductible.
When: Thursday, June 18, 2015 from 5-8 p.m.
Where: The Wharf Waterfront, 2501 Seaport Drive, Chester, Pa.
