Mabee Red Shield Boys & Girls Club Takes in the Arts

Mabee Red Shield Boys & Girls Club Director Jerome Smith and Program Director Jamecia Marshall took 14 kids from the club to “"Amy's Beauty-An African Fantasy Tale" at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center Saturday (July 17). Jerome said it was a great performance and the kids really enjoyed it. One of the actors in the play was a former Mabee Red Shield member and many of the performers were in A Pocket Full of Hope, an arts organization which had sung and and performed at Mabee Red Shield Friday (July 16). Young Rembrandts art teacher and Mabee Red Shield volunteer Miss LaDonna had obtained 20 free tickets to “Amy’s Beauty.” Since the club didn’t need six of the tickets, Jerome gave them to a group of kids waiting in line to buy tickets. “It was so cool. It was like paying it forward,” Jerome said.
