During a one-hour assembly students are treated to a lively presentation introducing them to the various instruments and sounds of a symphony orchestra.“We are so grateful to United Charity Foundation for helping us to provide musical enrichment to children in this community,” said Vikki Sung, President of PSHA. “Being exposed to this could really inspire a child to play a musical instrument in the future.”United Charity Foundation was started by San Marino residents, Dr. Carl Moy and Mrs. Linda Moy, first generation Chinese and Taiwanese immigrants that came to the Los Angeles area in the early 1980’s. Dr. Moy is an esteemed healthcare professional and Mrs. Moy is a successful business woman and entrepreneur. They founded United Charity Foundation in 2004 because they “wanted to give back to the community we live in.”“There are so many diverse communities in the area that could benefit from our support,” said Dr. Moy. “We want children to be able to seek higher education, to learn about their culture and to experience music and the arts.”Through the foundation the Moys have supported many local non-profit organizations including the Pasadena Symphony, Five Acres, Huntington Library and Gardens and the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. In addition to their support of non-profit organizations in the community, the Moys also provide scholarships to Pasadena City College students who demonstrate high academic achievement, leadership and commitment.Mrs. Moy said she learned about PSHA’s Music MobileTM program when her home was selected as the 1999 Pasadena Showcase House of Design, the annual fundraiser PSHA puts on to raise money for music and art programs throughout the San Gabriel Valley. “I was so impressed with the organization for the work they do,” she said. “I didn’t know that these music programs were funded from this design home.” Besides the Music MobileTM, PSHA has two other music programs, Youth Concert and Instrumental Competition.The Moys have resided in San Marino for nearly twenty years. In their spare time, they like to travel, take golf lessons, ping pong lessons and just spend time with their children and grandchildren.The 2020 Showcase House of Design opens on April 26th and runs through May 17th.
