Outdoors plus 10 other Hamptons retailers along with Music for Humanity are running a private sale to benefit an extraordinarily gifted young violinist, Maxfield Panish, a recent graduate of East Hampton High School, to help him continue his music education at the Manhattan School of Music. The tuition is $35,000 per year. After receiving numerous scholarships he is still $18,000 short.
Maxfield was awarded a $2500 Music for Humanity scholarship and has the ability to become a world class violinist. When he was 5 years old he said to his mother, "I want to play the violin." Now 13,000 hours of practice later he is well on his way to becoming a world class musician. We can all help him make that a reality. You can see him perform here: http://vimeo.com/43214927
The sale is 20% Off almost everything (there are some exceptions) at all the stores. Originally the sale was to end on Thursday Nov. 15th, but because of Hurricane Sandy, a number of retailers are extending the sale through Sunday Nov. 18th.
To participate visit Outdoors in Amagansett to buy a voucher for $20 (the $20 goes to Maxfield). You'll save more than the $20 with your 20% discount. You can find a list of participating retailers here: http://maxfieldmfhscholarship.com Please check with each one to confirm they are extending the sale through Sunday Nov. 18th.
You can also make an online tax-deductible donation to Music for Humanity here: http://musicforhumanity.org/musicians/index.php?t=mfh_donate Please notate if you would like it to be specifically for Maxfield. Thanks for your support. If we all give a little we can make a big difference.
