Hey Tampa Bay!  Jessica here with an update from the Straz Center for the Performing Arts' Patel Conservatory.

Students at the Patel Conservatory raised more than $4,700 at last month's Patel-a-thon fundraiser to support the Patel Conservatory's education and outreach programs!!  About 300 students representing more than 40 classes participated in the March 20 event, during which time they sang, danced, played instruments, and acted to raise funds to help the Patel Conservatory continue to provide educational and outreach services to the Tampa Bay area.  In addition, funds will be used to help the organization continue to provide scholarships for classes to about 10 percent of its student body.

Wow! Way to go students, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
