Why you should attend: Our mission is to celebrate, nurture, promote the Arts through diversity, entertainment, and education. We strive to facilitate the transformation of lives through art. Join us for this fundraiser to support young people’s participation in artistic production. In 2019 our goal is to raise an endowment of $100,000 to establish a sustainable means of providing equitable access to our children’s arts education programs. We have never had such a fund. This event kicks off that initiative.
