Obama's Donate $10,000 to Mosaic Youth Theatre

President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama made a personal donation of $10,000 to Detroit's Mosaic Youth Theatre.

One of the premiere youth theaters in the country, got the donation that topped them all last week when they opened up an envelope containing a $10,000 personal check from President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama.

According to both the Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News, the organization waited a week to let the news out to the press because they wanted to confirm that the check was, indeed, from the Obamas.

Anna Serra, director of marketing and development for the theater, said she doesn't know what inspired the donation, but Mosaic might have gotten on the president's radar when members performed at an Obama campaign event in Detroit in 2008.
