BRIO Tuscan Grille treated the Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas members to an Italian lunch
On Friday, April 22, local non-profit Project Shero had the Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas members experience its WonderChild® – Dream Explorer™ program and enjoy a tasty Italian lunch from BRIO Tuscan Grille. The children learned the importance of achieving their dreams through a fun filled afternoon of learning about and understanding the world of being a drummer.
Before the big drumming program started, nearly 200 Boys & Girls Clubs of Las Vegas members at the James Clubhouse were treated to Brio Tuscan Grille lunch boxes filled with a turkey panini, orange and a bag of potato chips. BRIO is located in Town Square and has opened its second Las Vegas location at Tivoli Village inside Queensridge.
After lunch, the children explored the different kinds of drums and were able to practice their drumming skills through various activities. In addition, the children were treated to a performance by Eric Seats, drummer for Ms. Patti LaBelle and co-founder of Next Great Drummer, a national drumming competition. Eight-year-old drumming sensation Alexey Poblete, who recently won local NGD completion again, shared your drumming talents with the kids. Poblete had an opportunity earlier this year to perform with Ms. Patti LaBelle on stage. Also, Korabo, Las Vegas’ newest Taiko sensation had several of their members share the art of Taiko drumming and discuss how they build their own drums.
Project Shero’s mission is to help kids be passionate about life and empower their perception of themselves to be tomorrow’s Heroes and Sheroes. They inspire children to believe in themselves with innovative programming which they deliver through collaborations with other non-profit service organizations.
