Establishing an Arts Enrichment Fund for DAWE

Lorry and Charlotte Sherman are not only an inspiration to everyone who knows them…they’re a beacon of light for Dream A World Education. Together they’ve decided to establish the Lorry and Charlotte Sherman Arts Enrichment Fund to sustain and expand DAWE’s programming for children in impoverished areas of Los Angeles.

“We’re in our 90’s now…The arts have provided a rich life for us, filled with beauty and meaningful relationships. We’re committed to leaving a legacy that will give children a chance to experience what we have been so privileged to know in our lifetimes.

If the arts have touched you in any way, we hope you’ll honor those meaningful memories by making a contribution to our Dream A World Education Fund.”
