The annual Youth Education Scholarship (Y.E.S.) Fund Raffle, held March 21 & 22 during The Chase Brock Experience performances, raised a remarkable $4,200 to benefit the Y.E.S. Fund.
This season’s Y.E.S. Fund budget goal was $18,000; with the raffle, donors exceeded that goal and have raised $19,836 as of April 7. This amount provides more than 1,900 underserved children a chance to attend a live performing arts event in DWT’s Matinee Series for Students and Families.
More than 60 individuals and organizations donated their goods and services to the raffle, with amazing items including unique works of art, a GoPro Hero 3 camera, spa packages, custom jewelry, personal fitness training sessions, hand turned wooden bowls, golf package for four, theatre and local performing arts tickets, and more.
If you or someone you know would like to donate an item to the 2015 raffle, please contact Tiffany Santiago at 828.210.9850 or e-mail [email protected].
Many children will attend an arts event for the first time thanks to the Y.E.S. Fund and its supporters. Make a difference in the life of a child today. Click here for more information about the Y.E.S. Fund and how to sponsor a child’s trip to the theatre.
