Music & Miles: Living Proof

Dear Family, Friends, and our Caring Community, 

    We are ecstatic with the outpouring of love and support that shined through at our Living Proof, Music & Miles, Changing Minds event on Saturday at
The Chappaqua Performing Arts Center. We can’t thank you enough for being part of an inspirational and invigorating evening that featured a variety of performers and artists who shared their personal and compelling stories of perseverance and resilience with their mental health and physical challenges. It was incredible to experience an event that was so well received by an audience – knowing that it had a tremendous positive impact and meaning for so many people. 

    We are deeply grateful that we can continue Miles’ legacy through the power of music and to provide need-based scholarships to high school students at
Lagond Music School. Our hope is for all of us to continue to become a louder collective voice and normalize the mental health conversation each and every day. 

    Take time to pause, to listen and ask,
Are you okay? — and to let others know that there is help and hope.

With gratitude, 
Shari, Ed, Max and Hannah
