Glass Garden Art Fundraiser for CMS

At Art in the Park, Martha Reitz of Glass Garden Art will be doing a fundraiser to benefit CMS.  Martha is a retired educator who uses recycled glassware to create glass garden art.  She donates 100% of her net sales of these art pieces, less material costs and venue fees, to local charities.  This year she has selected Community Music School, along with the Allentown School District Foundation, as the charitable beneficiaries of her sales at Art in the Park.  Check out her work at
