Broken Wing Charity: Classical Concerts for a Cure
My name is Dr. Leann Osterkamp and I am a 28 year-old Steinway Artist. I am founding my own initiative called the Broken Wing Charity to use music to help fund cancer research and empower those affected by the disease. You can learn more about me and upcoming events at www.brokenwingcharity.org
After experiencing the effects of breast cancer within my own family, I became passionate about raising funds and awareness for all victims of cancers. Music helped me cope with seeing my best friend battle the disease. I try to share the same consolation and empowerment of music with victims and their communities.
100% of my Broken Wing Charity recitals raise money for the Susan G. Komen Charity. My recitals are aimed at bringing communities together in solidarity and hope. Why 'broken wing?' Dragonflies are able to fly and thrive even when they have a damaged or lost wing. My best friend said that on her worst days, seeing a dragonfly gave her confidence that she could persevere. Dragonflies (not common to where she lived) would appear to her on the days she needed them most. After sharing this with me, dragonflies have had a profound impact on my own life.
How to Get Involved
1. Please attend one (or all) of the inaugural 2019-2020 Colorado concerts! The concerts provide an afternoon/evening of classical music to raise awareness, funds, and bring together the community.
2. If you have a venue you would like to donate, please consider hosting a recital on this mini-tour. Please send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org
3. If you cannot attend, please consider still donating to the cause! Please help me expand this initiative to include all Colorado communities and help me to surpass my first fundraising goal!
