Karaoke Interstages Fundraiser Party @ Local 16 this Wednesday

Please join us for a karaoke party this Wednesday night to raise funds for middle school girls in Southeast DC with Interstages. The event will take place upstairs at Local 16. Admission is $20.00 to be paid at the bar and includes snacks, drink specials and all the karaoke fun you can handle!

Interstages was founded in 2005 by Herb Scott and Noel Tieszen, former DC Public Schools teachers who saw a need for youth development programming for their middle school students. Few youth living East of the River have access to structured, age-appropriate afterschool activities. Opportunities for these youth to discover their potential and work toward future goals are often few and far between. Interstages strives to fill this opportunity gap.

Interstages launched a pilot afterschool program for girls in February 2006. Even with minimal funding, the pilot semester’s huge success helped Interstages to build a growing network of individual, business, foundation, and community partners. These supporters help sustain quality programming and capacity-building so more girls (and eventually, boys) can access the opportunities Interstages provides.
