The Bay Education Foundation invites the community to Arts Alive on April 4, 2014, at Edgewater Beach Resort. Created to support arts in education, Arts Alive is a talent showcase that supports the fine arts in Bay District Schools and the Bay Education Foundation Take Stock in Children Program. This year's event is part of a year-long celebration to honor the Bay Education Foundation's 25th anniversary.
"If you don't have fun at this, then you are way too hard to please," joked David Powell, president of the Bay Education Foundation. "This event has something for everybody."
In the past three years, Arts Alive has become one of the most anticipated charity events in Bay County. The evening features a reception/silent auction, a gallery of student art, a three-course meal, and a fabulous variety show. The show consists of approximately fifteen acts, selected via audition, representing the best singers, dancers, and musicians that Bay District Schools has to offer. Auditions will be held February 3 and 4.
"Arts Alive is best charity dinner you will ever attend. The entertainment is top-notch. We have an amazing wealth of talent right here in Bay County," said Beth Deluzain, executive director for the Bay Education Foundation.
Arts Alive is a major fundraising event for the Bay Education Foundation. All proceeds are used to purchase Take Stock in Children college scholarships and to provide $500 grants for visual and performing arts classrooms. Proceeds from last year's event impacted more than 6,000 students through the grant program and changed lives forever in the Take Stock in Children program.
Tickets for Arts Alive are $125 each ($1,000 per table) and may be purchased by calling 850.767.4111 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Sponsorships are needed.
