Elisabeth Kam organized a craft camp to raise funds for Rui Rui, a girl in China whose congenital heart disease is too complex for operation. Thank you, Beth, for combining your creative passion with philanthropy!

From a very young age, I have loved all kinds of crafts. Over the years, I have learned knitting, weaving, cross-stitch, embroidery, sewing, and needle-felting. Since my sisters and I have been running Young Musicans Workshop for four summers, I decided to try to teach a new camp focused on my passion for fiber arts.
This creative fundraising event connects young musicians for a worthy cause. Emily and Lauren Kam started YMW in 2013 and have hosted it for 4 years in a row.
Emily and her older sister Lauren started Young Musicians Workshop the summer after Emily finished 7th grade. They have both been playing violin and piano for many years and especially love playing in quartets. Emily plays viola as well. “We wanted to use our gifts and abilities to help others,” Emily shared.
