Thanks for Joy to the Children

December 17, 2015
Lake Placid News

To the editor:

Enormous gratitude goes to Ed and Lisa Weibrecht and the staff of the Mirror lake Inn for hosting the 29th Joy to the Children event to benefit the Lake Placid Center for the Arts children's programs. It was a dazzling night with nearly 500 people sharing Christmas cheer as they supported programs that continue to bring all forms of art into our children's lives.

We cannot say thank you enough to the Weibrechts for donating the Mirror Lake Inn and this beautiful party, which supports LPCA's arts education program. Each season, hundreds of children from the region attend these programs including the Young and Fun series, summer art camps, and After School Workshops. These inspiring programs expose youngsters to theater, music, dance, and art. Our region's schools and home schools bring busloads of students to the School Day Matinee program where they see special performances by artists visiting the LPCA stage.

Thanks also go to the generous businesses and individuals who helped sponsor the event, to those who donated items for the silent auction, to the many volunteers who helped make, gather, and display auction items, and to all the people who bought tickets and auction items. A very special thank you to the three LPCA chairs who did an outstanding job putting this event together: Kari Hoffman, Erin Perkins and Sharon Wood.

Thank you Weibrechts for your leadership in helping to establish and maintain this unique and important resource for the families in our region. You bring joy to our lives.
