Good news on the nonprofit front! San Antonio's Brighton Center was recognized by Non-Profit Times, the leading business publication in nonprofit management, as the #2 nonprofit in the nation to work for in 2012. Brighton Center, located at 14207 Higgins Road, provides family and community education and developmental services to children with disabilities or delays, empowering them to achieve their individual potential. Executive Director Kim Jefferies, stated "Our employees are out there every day making a difference in our community and deserve a positive, encouraging work environment." You can volunteer to help these awesome employees in program support, special events and board committees. For more info, check the volunteer page of their website. Youth Orchestras of San Antonio, aka YOSA, recently proclaimed their inaugural Beethoven 5K/10K a huge success. More than $25,000 was raised by the participants to help support the 1,500 students in all of YOSA's programs.  You've seen them run, now hear them play.
