CSO Pops: Dreaming of April in Paris March 31

Charleston Symphony Orchestra Pops presents:

Dreaming of April in Paris
March 31, 2022
7:30 pm
Gaillard Center

For tickets, click here.

By the time this concert starts, it will still be March in Charleston; but it will be April in Paris! Charleston has a deep connection to French culture and this performance will celebrate that shared legacy with well-known French music.

Take a walk in the moonlight with Claude Debussy’s Claire de lune, dance the can-can to Jacques Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld, and revel in the sounds of George Bizet’s Habanera from Carmen. In addition to these classics, the performance will also feature a gypsy jazz band with tunes made popular by Édith Piaf, Stéphane Grappelli, and Django Reinhardt. See life through rose-colored glasses with “La Vie en rose” and celebrate the charm of spring with “April in Paris,” among others.

The $150,000 Goal for Backpack Buddies

The $150,000 Goal of The Mike Gorski and Friends
2022 Challenge For The Backpack Buddies

That’s right….you knew he and his Friends would be back once again….BUT, this year he is seventy-five friends strong. Mike Gorski and his Friends, old and new, have generously secured $75,000 that will now be used to match dollar-for-dollar donations made by you, the residents of Kiawah, Seabrook, and Johns Islands.  

Yes, folks, you heard right! They are matching dollar-for-dollar for your donations made. It’s a  win-win for both Backpack Buddies’ programs – the Backpack Buddies Seabrook Island and the Backpack Buddies Group of Kiawah Women’s Foundation. The two organizations are both 501(c)(3) nonprofits whose missions are to feed local, hungry school children on the weekends. These children receive breakfast and lunch at school but are food insecure on weekends and school holidays. Backpack Buddies is currently providing approximately 650 weekly bags to children in the Charleston County schools they support. 

Mike Gorski, Owner of Island Transportation LLC, launched this project six years ago to raise additional funds for both Backpack Buddies’ programs. This year the goal is $150,000, but he needs your help to achieve this lofty goal. Resident donations have started coming in and Mike reports that we are off to a good start as can be seen by the red in the Goal Thermometer. The momentum needs to continue and the donations need to keep coming in. As it has already been stated, the Friends are matching your donations dollar-for-dollar. All of your donations are tax-deductible as permitted by law. 

Making a resident donation is very easy. Just call or text Mike Gorski at 864-316-3894 and tell him your donation amount. He will provide all of the details for the different ways that you can make your donation. Thank you in advance for your support and please make your donation now before the campaign ends at the end of March so it will be matched dollar-for-dollar.
