Talented teens pause

for noble cause

The 14th-annual Coffee for A Cause will take place at Twinsburg Public Library March 23 at 6:30 p.m., showcasing local teen talent and raising money for Aluminum Cans for Burned Children.

This is one of the most anticipated annual events at the library, where talented teens perform music, poetry and comedy skits in a coffee house setting. Patrons sip mochas and cappuccinos and dine on home-baked pastries while being serenaded and entertained. The money raised benefits an organization that improves the quality of life for young burn survivors and their families by providing funding for research, annual therapeutic residential burn camps and other year-round activities that support their physical, psychological and social needs.

Coffee for a Cause became a partnership April 27, 2001, between the Twinsburg School District, the Twinsburg Public Library and the Friends of the Twinsburg Public Library. With less than $100 of seed money donated by the Friends, as well as donated baked items, students were able to raise more than $500 that year.

Students have been able to raise more than $14,000 over the past 14 years.

Each year at the event, musically gifted teens have astounded guests with their abilities playing the violin, cello, flute, and even electric guitar. In the end, the main goal is to inspire the audience to help children who have endured a terrible crisis get a brief respite from their pain and worries.

Teens interested in performing can register online at www.twinsburglibrary.org.
