Ticket prices cover only about half the cost of the performance. Business donations help with the other half, as well as provide the opportunity for discounts for the elderly, students and for others who may not otherwise be able to afford it.That’s why your support is so critical. Your one gift also helps educate our children. Educational programs by groups supported by the Fund are seen, heard and felt by more than 60,000 children annually. Programs can broaden horizons, teach the classics or somehow reach an unreachable kid.
