Jim McGrath donation for piano restoration


We are grateful to our patrons, such as League benefactor Jim McGrath, Chairman of the DC Tenants Advocacy Coalition (TENAC). Thanks to Jim’s generous donation, we were able to restore the historic 1905 Steinway grand piano in the Pen Arts parlor. Jim’s $2,000 donation paid for a complete action and tone regulation that brought the worthy piano back to professional performance standards.
