For the fifth year in a row, I am excited to go Over the Edge for the Flynn and rappel nine stories down the side of the Courtyard Marriott on Saturday, August 31. "Yikes"! Please make a generous donation to my fundraising page which will support the Flynn's great education programs, a tradition worth every story of the Marriott! This fundraiser (with your help) can raise over $100,000 to support the Flynn student matinee series, FlynnArts classes and the Flynn Youth Theater Company, important and life affirming programs for young students, offering free admission to thousands.
Please make a donation to my fundraising page and then join me downtown on Saturday, August 31.
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.
