A huge heartfelt THANK YOU to all of our supporters for this project, especially the Anonymous donor who gave $750 earlier today to exceed our fundraising goal!! The students and staff of Vare Washington are so grateful for this opportunity!

    Bring Back Our Musical! by Zachary Duberstein
    Prior to the merger of Abigail Vare and George Washington Schools, George Washington was known for putting on amazing musical performances; lighting, elaborate costumes, choreographed dance and song routines, the works! Sadly, due to lack of adequate funding, the school has gone without a musical for several years.
