Well, we're at it again! We kicked off our annual fundraising efforts on Tuesday night with 350 of our great donors, volunteers and friends. This year our goal is to raise $3 MILLION - more than EVER - for the arts in Central Oklahoma, and we're really excited about what those funds could mean for our cultural community. Think about it...
- $25 admits FIVE high school students to see a play.
- $50 exposes TEN elementary students to their first orchestra concert.
- $180 provides as at-risk student with TWO semesters of dance instruction.
- $250 offsets the costs for an ENTIRE classroom to tour an art museum.
Even $5 goes a long way, and your ONE gift supports TWENTY of Central Oklahoma's oustanding arts organizations ensuring an exciting and thriving cultural community for all of us.
Our theme this year is "I Heart the Arts" and we're encouraging everyone to think of all the ways and reasons you love the arts. Do you love listening to the radio on your way to work each day?...Seeing the masterpieces your kids create at school taped to the refrigerator door?... Dancing to the music at a Thunder game? Or maybe it's your favorite movie, video game, dress, building, book or play. ALL of these things are impacted by the arts. So...Why do you "Heart the Arts"? Tell us! Or join us on Twitter @AlliedArtsOKC and use #HeartTheArts. Or visit us at www.AlliedArtsOKC.com to make a donation.
We're so thankful. Thanks to everyone that joined us for the celebration on Tuesday! Thanks to the Oklahoma City Philharmonic, the OK City Chorus, Campell Walker Fields and Eddie Walker, and Oklahoma Children's Theater for your beautiful performances! And thanks to everyone that is working hard to make this year a success! This isn't possible without you.
