“It isn’t where I am, It’s only where I’ll go from here.” – Times Are Hard for Dreamers, from the musical “Amelie”

Many of you may be unaware, but I am a father of three. Each of my daughters is gritty, gifted, spirited, and more than a parent could ever celebrate; that being said, I want to celebrate two in this post specifically.

My two oldest, Ariah and Shalom, are headed to Broadway, and typing this is still the craziest thing in the world to write. Ariah and Shalom have the opportunity of a lifetime this June as they have been invited to make their Broadway debut at the Gershwin theater as part of the fundraiser “Arts for Autism.” You can learn more about this journey in the following 1 min video.

Both girls recently auditioned and received a coveted position in the cast. In addition to performing, they will study with active and veteran Broadway vocalists, actors, and dancers. As you can imagine, this is a fantastic opportunity, and the girls are raising funds for this endeavor and need your help to make this dream a reality. We have set up a GoFundMe to help offset the cost of this trip to NYC and would appreciate any support you can extend toward this opportunity to study, perform, and help grow their skills in the arts.
