SLCD Art Show - March 3, 2010


For the second year running, Bear Givers proudly hosted an Art Show for the talented students of The School for Language and Communication Development (SLCD) at the JBS Gallery on March 3, 2010. With an even bigger turnout than last year, students presented all kinds of delightful artwork to share with an awed crowd of family, friends, staff members and guests.

Located in Glen Cove, NY, SLCD specializes in educating children with language and autism spectrum disorders. SLCD will receive 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the artwork from the show. The school is sure to benefit from the generous donations provided by those who attended.

Also in attendance was New York City Comptroller John Liu, who spoke to guests about the importance of educating children, our leaders of tomorrow. He also noted that honing the talents of children encourages them to be their very best. This message very much reflects the goal of Bear Givers' Empowerment Program, and we were happy to see that our City Comptroller shares the same vision.

Bear Givers would like to thank Dr. Ellenmorris Tiegerman, Laura Abrams, and Heather Bregartner of SLCD for helping to coordinate the Art Show, along with the students for their wonderful artwork. We would also like to thank all those who came that night to support our cause.
