Marya’s Gift is a scholarship fund established to honor the memory of Marya Lenn Yee, a brilliant professional and a passionate patron of the arts. She was the first person to believe that Camp Broadway® could become a place where children could hone their talent, develop their confidence, and shape their “character”. She shared her wisdom and invested her extraordinary legal expertise without which Camp Broadway® would not exist today. This dedicated fund enables deserving children, ages 9-15, who would not otherwise have access, to attend Camp Broadway’s camps and special events so that Marya’s legacy of love for the arts can inspire future artists and audiences.
This is a great country fund (complete)
This Is A Great Country Fund provided financial assistance to 50 military families across America whose children had been cast to perform with The Camp Broadway Kids Ensemble in the 2017 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, November 23, 2017. Through a national talent search, Camp Broadway cast 125 boys and girls, ages 9-16, of all ethnicities and cultural backgrounds to represent their parents who had served in all branches of the armed services. With permission, The Camp Broadway Kids Ensemble performed an original musical representation of Irving Berlin’s American anthem “This Is A Great Country”. This marked Camp Broadway’s 10th appearance in this event.
