CHIMEapalooza to ring in funds for CHIME Institute

March 4, 2013 by  

CHIMEapalooza, a night of magical, musical fun, will be held this month in Northridge to help raise funds for the CHIME Institute.

Amy Brenneman, who is one of the organizers for the fundraising event, said:

“For the people that came last year, you know what a magical night it was, and we have plans to be even bigger and more inclusive and more exciting. For people who didn’t come last year, there is no place like the CHIME Institute. This is the night to celebrate the institute through music, drama and creativity that truly honors how unique a community we are.”

The CHIME Institute was founded in 1990 as a leader in the development of educational programs, training environments, and research to publicize and spread the best practices involving inclusive education. The training and research center is located in the Michael D. Eisner College of Education at the California State University in Northridge. At the CHIME Institute, children with disabilities and special needs learn side-by-side with gifted children, as well as those who develop typically.

Those within the community may have noticed flyer printing and other advertisements for the fundraiser posted throughout the community. CHIMEapalooza will be held at the Plaza del Sol Performance Hall at CSUN on Saturday, March 9 from 7:00 pm until 9:00 pm. The Performance Hall is located on the east side of the campus just off of Zelzah Avenue. Tickets are $100 per individual, and a pre-show reception will be held from 6:00 pm until 7:00 pm. There will also be a party after the show. Tickets can be purchased at the CHIMEapalooza website.
