I am really excited to go Over the Edge for Flynn and rappel nine stories down the side of the Courtyard Marriott on Saturday, August 31. I would be so grateful if you would help me in my efforts to support the education programs at the Flynn by making a donation to my fundraising page. What excites me so much about this event is that it directly supports the Flynn’s efforts to nurture and expand the minds of so many of our community’s children. So many of us as adults have enjoyed an incredible show at the Flynn but many of us are simply unaware of the incredible work going on with the Student Matinee Series, FlynnArts classes and the Flynn Youth Theater Company. I was simply amazed to learn that over 1/3 of the Flynn’s annual $7.5 million budget goes to education. It fills my heart with joy to know that the Flynn is helping to bring the joy of live performance to so many children. I feel that this opportunity to rappel in support of the Flynn not only helps me raise some well-deserved financial support for their education programs, but it also helps me spread awareness that the Flynn is a non-profit and relies on community support.
Please make a donation to my fundraising page and then join me downtown on Saturday, August 31 as I rappel nine stories.
Help me reach my goal and support the cultural and education programs at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts!
Last Fall, 240 students attended weekly dance, music and theater classes and over $6,500 was awarded in scholarships to students. It is exciting to see the variety of workshops and classes being offered. There is truly something for all ages.

A series of 30+ per year matinees serve approximately 38,000 children per year in grades PreK-12 from within a 120-mile radius.
Support of the matinees allows ticket prices to be at the lowest accessible access point and to offer free tickets to those students with high need. Last year, 7,100 students attended for free!
Support also allows the Flynn to reach out to rural and underserved schools, providing tickets and bussing support, thereby equalizing access for students from communities that have fewer opportunities to experience the arts.
