iThings2CollardGreens is such a fun name it’s perfect for a girls summer enrichment program. The program is aimed at girls aged five to 13, according to the organization’s founder, Kathy English Holt and its annual fundraiser takes place February 9. Arts For Our Children, Incorporated will present “A Black History Benefit Concert” at the Kingsbury Center, 5000 14th Street, NW in the District.

The benefit will feature Grammy-nominated Jazz Bassist Corcoran Holt, son of English Holt. Songwriter Master See will also perform.

Holt says iThings2CollardGreens prides itself as a back-to-basics program that combines the arts with academics. She says the girls spend six weeks learning much the same way educator Nannie Helen Burroughs taught African-American girls in the 1900s. The girls learn self-confidence, perseverance and respect for others, according to the program.

For information on tickets, call (202) 368-8721. Advance tickets are $25. Tickets at the door will be sold for $30. Parking spaces are available behind the Kingsbury Center.
