Dolores’ beloved piano was donated to this amazing school and continues through these wonderful people to provide a source of music and joy for future generations. It is heartbreaking at this difficult time for all of us that businesses like this are in danger of closing due in part to their inability to qualify for federal funds. Whatever funds are left available from Dolores’ estate will be given in donation here, to honor the kind of music and art that Dolores loved and supported.
