Elizabeth Kannon - A Gift from the Heart

Eleven-year-old Elizabeth Kannon is already a patron of the arts. While most girls her age worry about making friends and fitting in, Elizabeth was more concerned about the challenges facing the Orchestra she loves. So, instead of asking for presents for her November birthday, she asked her friends and family for monetary gifts to give to The Philadelphia Orchestra. And how did that go over? She was able to donate money to the tune of $567 to the Orchestra’s Annual Fund.
