Perforce Software

Dear Editor:

Rhythmix Cultural Works (RCW) and Perforce Software partnered with AUSD to provide free cultural arts programming to approximately 1000 Alameda elementary students over the past months. Through RCW's Island Arts Concert & Workshop Series, students were introduced to music and dance from Cuba, Brazil and West Africa. This Performance Arts & Learning Program is free and students and their teachers learned about each country, the language, and danced, clapped, and sang with the artists.

The theatre was alive with the squealing and excitement of the kids and they couldn't wait to ask questions and learn more.

We here at The Alamedan want to offer our heartfelt thanks today to Christopher Seiwald and the Perforce Foundation, for their support of our efforts to better inform you about all things Alameda. The Foundation has generously donated $10,000, which will greatly enhance our ability to bring you the story of Alameda and to create the fundraising infrastructure required to make The Alamedan a viable, long-term news and information outlet.
