San Antonio based non-profit, M.U.S.I.C. Project, is hosting a silent auction and screening of the documentary Alive Inside. This beautiful documentary follows social worker, Dan Cohen, who plays music to seniors who have become incommunicable with the world, yet become conversational and energized by listening to music of their youth. In Alive Inside, Cohen exhibits music's ability to combat memory loss and helps breathe life into senior's sense of self. You see these individuals light up with life and surprise and it is one of the most wonderful and hopeful things you will ever see.
