"The Tijerina Foundation has made it possible for thousands of Valley children to enjoy the magic of the Rio Grande Valley Ballet's "Nutcracker", the classic Christmas fairytale. Your gift has permitted these kids to experience live ballet in a performing arts theatre – something they've probably never seen and are not likely to forget – and inspired and awakened them to the enduring beauty of classical music and performing arts."DEBORAH CASE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR RIO GRANDE VALLEY BALLET
