Why you should attend

Arts Blast’s mission is to celebrate, nurture and promote the Arts through diversity, entertainment and education. They strive to facilitate the transformation of lives through art. Join them for this fundraiser to support young people’s participation in artistic production. In 2019 their 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. They have never had such a fund, and this event kicks off that initiative.
