Love, Hope & Harmony – Recap

On November 19, the Han-Schneider International Children’s Foundation and WorldArts Gives collaborated to host the “Love, Hope & Harmony” concert to benefit the children served by our organization. The event was held at the WorldArts Studio in Culver City.  The event was emceed by comedian Blake Wexler and was attended by over 175 guests who enjoyed the live music, catered food, drinks and the silent auction featuring more than 50 items ranging from vacations travel packages to sporting events.

Avonlea, an up-and-coming 16-year-old singer/songwriter kicked off the concert and wowed the crowd with her original songs. She was joined by special guest, Trenyce, who put on a dazzling performance covering songs by some of the most iconic artists of our time including an impressive rendition of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.” After a brief break, Reverse Order, of America’s Got Talent fame, took the stage to rock out.  The musical performance aspect of the event was wrapped up by Interscope recording artist and GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter Candice Pillay whose unique sound and passion for the children not only entertained the crowd, but rallied them to help the foundation raise over $3,000 via a text-to-donate campaign.

When the music stopped, it was evident that not only did all the attendees have an amazing time, but the event was a
success. Through ticket sales, raffle tickets, donations, silent auction and the text-to-give campaign, the event raised over $15,000 that will help the organization run its programs in 2017.

We want to thank WorldArts Studios for hosting the event, Avonlea, Trenyce, Reverse Order and Candice Pillay for performing, all the sponsors and donors for making the night possible and all those who attended the event. We are forever grateful for all the compassion and support needed to make “Love, Hope & Harmony” possible.
