This is a real case of trying to turn lemons into lemonade!
The Philadelphia Orchesta is seeking Chapter 11 bankruptcy, due to financial struggles stemming from fewer donations, shrinking endowment income, pension costs and rent prices.
But in an attempt to keep the group afloat, officials have announced that they'll be kicking off a new campaign called the Listen With Your Heart initiative in order to raise awareness and money, and will be hosting public events for fundraising and outreach in downtown Philly restaurants, hotels, and shops!
Wonderful! We sincerely hope that every music lover and supporter of the arts in the area will do their part!
It is SUCH an important cause!
Fingers crossed for you guys! Hang in there!

What a benevolent
and conveniently timed gesture, Lindsay! Truly heartwarming and impressive. Were we frustrated with you for some reason?
Oh, that's right! You managed to miraculously escape a much-deserved jail sentence, and now you're on your way back to rehab for the 475,000th time.
This weekend, Lindsay visited The Dream Center, a mission and outreach center in Echo Park in Los Angeles. Sources say that she was inspired to visit the center
out of the goodness of her heart by her business manager Lou Taylor.
Here's what Lindsay
was coached to say said genuinely about her experience at the center:
"What a great place The Dream Center is here in LA… had a nice time there today, it's so important to give back. I feel blessed."
This is the kind of gesture that would work better during a time when you aren't clearly trying to repair your irreparably damaged reputation, Lindz.
Do U think Lindsay's visit to the outreach center was genuine?
