August YAPI News and Notes
Even though there was only one performer for August YAPI, it was a very worthwhile event for that performer and for the audience. Grace Frey came all the way from Boerne, TX to perform and brought with her quite a fan club. She had family friends come to hear her from all over the Texas Hill Country. It was a great evening. Grace, who was new to the YAPI stage for the first time did a great concert for all the attendees. She sang and played guitar like a pro. It was a great 40 minute set. This 13 year old girl has a bright future in performance.
Susan Raybuck from Wimberley Valley Radio attended. She is planning on streaming YAPI once the Radio Station is up and running! That will be exciting!
YAPI now has 107 “Likes” on Facebook. Our goal was to reach 100 by August YAPI and we made it to 101 on YAPI night! Thanks to all you YAPI supporters. If you’re reading this and would like to join us on Facebook, go to www.facebook.com/YAPITexas and “LIKE”
Two generous donations were made toward the new YAPI piano on YAPI night! The total collected is now $287! We are almost half way there! It will be so exciting to get a new piano that will serve the talented players that perform at YAPI. To make a donation, you can send a check to Brenda Freed, P.O. Box 1856, Wimberley, TX 78606. The piano will stay at Maui Wowi with the YAPI sound system which was generously donated by the Wimberley Lion’s Club through the non-profit, Youth Taking Charge. DuAnne Redus is the owner of Maui Wowi and Youth Taking Charge is her non-profit.
Thanks to everyone who helped with the sound equipment at August YAPI. It is always greatly appreciated. A great big “thank you” to DuAnne Redus for being so supportive of Texas Hill Country Youth and for providing an appropriate venue supporting YAPI since 2006!
