In addition to all of the items it has helped the fine arts programs obtain, it has also helped fund scholarships to camps and workshops for students as well as graciously allotted funds to Civic Memorial graduates who elect to further their education in the arts at the collegiate level.
“We ask that you please help by being a part of this very successful program,” the Presidents Cline and Rogers said. “This can be done by making a monetary donation, providing items for any of the auctions (silent, basket or live) or attending the event.
“As a donor to the Fine Arts Auction, you not only aid to improve our fine arts programs, but you will also be recognized in our event’s program. In addition, your donation, in most instances, qualifies for a tax deduction.”
