The Avril Lavigne Foundation Awards Easter Seals Nevada
With Noteworthy $10,000 Grant

Easter Seals teams up with School of Rock to provide year-long music series for youth with disabilities

 

Easter Seals Nevada, the nonprofit that serves more than 8,000 Nevadans with disabilities every year, was recently awarded a $10,000 grant from The Avril Lavigne Foundation to fund the Avril Lavigne Rockstar Club at Easter Seals, a series of recreational and musical programs for youth with disabilities. Easter Seals has teamed up with School of Rock, the local chapter of the music school inspiring kids to rock on stage and in life, to execute the new year-long programming.

“Every dollar counts at Easter Seals and we are so excited to share music with our youth through the Avril Lavigne Foundation grant,” said Brian Patchett, President and CEO of Easter Seals Nevada. “This programming gives kids with disabilities the chance to not only play musical instruments and learn the fundamentals, but express themselves through music.”

Through this new program at School of Rock, Easter Seals is helping youth with disabilities develop creatively by expressing themselves through music in a social and team-building environment. With an emphasis on song interpretation, rhythm, live singing, playing with a band and perfecting “rock star” poses, participants are encouraged to embrace their inner rock star while exploring and experiencing music through drums, keyboard, tambourines, egg shakers, microphones and more.

Groups of Easter Seals clients ages 10-18 are teamed up with house band members from School of Rock for a full integration experience. The programming focuses on a different musical artist each month, ranging from the classic Rock n’ Roll beats of Elvis and the King of Pop Michael Jackson to the hard rock sounds of AC/DC and the Pop Punk hits from Avril Lavigne.

Easter Seals Nevada strives to create solutions that help people with disabilities become self-sufficient through education, community partnerships and direct services.

Local Flamingo headliner George Wallace hosted the event and introduced each of the honorary ambassadors, a child or adult who has directly benefited from services at Easter Seals Nevada. Jabbawockeez served as the grand marshals and helped kick off the walk by leading participants through the balloon arch to the walking path and live music was provided by School of Rock.  After the walk, attendees took photographs with the Easter Bunny, participated in Easter egg hunts and enjoyed a carnival with face painting, treats and games.

Other noted appearances include Miss Nevada Randi Sundquist and Nevada elected officials.
