BAMA Works Fund Supports HTC

A Big “THANK YOU” to the BAMA Works Fund of Dave Matthews Band in the Charlottesville Area Community Foundation.

They gave Hiromi T’ai Chi a $4,500 grant for a collaborative project with the Charlottesville Boys & Girls Club. The project will start this fall.

We are very excited to share T’ai Chi with children in the community and are grateful for this support from the BAMA Works Fund!
