Send Genevieve to Steel Bridge Songfest!
Gen recently had the distinct honor of receiving an invitation to participate at the Steel Bridge Songfest ( http://www.steelbridgesongfest.org/), a "week-long collaborative songwriting intensive for professional and aspiring songwriters. Participation is by invitation only. It involves a week of collaborative songwriting and performing with a purpose in mind." Past collaborators at Steel Bridge include Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jackson Browne, among many others.
This invitation was an unexpected surprise for Gen, and she is humbled (and really excited!) to have the opportunity to share her talents and learn from some accomplished professional songwriters. The experiences gained and relationships forged will prove invaluable as she continues her pursuit of a career in music.
How can you help? As you can imagine, the cost of 8 nights of hotel lodging and meals is prohibitive for a 15 year-old. By making a contribution -- in any amount -- you are playing a direct role in helping a exceptional young woman realize her dreams. We have set a fundraising goal of $1,000 for this campaign, which will cover Gen's lodging and a portion of her meal expenses for the week.*

Thank you in advance for your support! Gen will be posting updates on this page as the campaign progresses, including a song or two!
*Any funds raised in excess of the campaign goal will be invested directly into Gen's music career, including covering the cost of her weekly voice and guitar lessons.
