KEEN Benefit Concert

Thank you to the following amazing performers who held  a special concert night to benefit KEEN Greater DC athletes:  Alex, Allison and Austin Moon, Jaewoo Chung, Jessica Lin, Jason Kang, Alexander and Luke Cho and Matthew Nam. 

The concert was facilitated by TaeKuk Martial Arts and Steinway Piano Gallery in Bethesda.

2019 Matching Gift Challenge

Longtime KEEN partner  Joyce Koons Honda Buick GMC is matching donations made through December 31 up to a total of $15,000.

That means any gift you make will double in value to be worth twice as much to the children, teens and young adults with disabilities we serve. 

We have raised $6,345 so far towards our goal of $15,000.  If we can raise the full amount, a total of $30,000 will go to support our programs.

The Embassy of France and European Union created another wonderful KidsEuro Festival Day for KEEN athletes on Saturday, October 26.    

The KidsEuro Festival is one of the largest performing arts festivals for children in America, bringing Europe's children entertainers to the DC metro area for free performances, concerts, workshops, movies, storytelling, puppetry, dance, magic, and cinema.
