Rock for Layla House

Adam Ezra and percusionist Turtle rock the house!

In March, AAI Director of Development Susan Poisson-Dollar led a trip to Layla House for 12 high school students and 3 chaperones from the Emma Willard School in Troy, NY.  One of the high school girls, Hayley Kohler from Westwood, MA, was so moved by her experience that she and her parents organized a fundraiser for friends and family with Boston Area rock musician Adam Ezra who often devotes his considerable talent to good causes.

Haley's June fundraiser brought in $2000 for Layla House and Hayley has chosen to help the Grace Fund, the Good Neighbor Fund and a medical fund for the children of Layla.  Her family recently sent these photos of the event.   Hayley did a fabulous job decorating with pictures she took in Ethiopia and also gave a short slide show during the intermission so that her friends and family could learn more about our work!

Thank you so much Kohler family.  We hope it inspires more people to do something fun for a cause.
