Legott Family, Arts Academy Alumnus will be honored
The 10th annual Dinner for the Arts, St. Peter’s Community Arts Academy’s only annual fundraiser, will look slightly different this year. For one thing, it’s coming to your house. Keeping the community’s health and safety in mind, this year’s dinner will consist of a 4-course meal from Beef and Brew, offered as a curbside pick up, a link to a video presentation of awards, updates, and a tour of the construction underway to create the new state-of-the-art art studio, and an online silent auction.
This year’s details:
- Dinner: Meals can be ordered online and will be available for pick up from 5:30 – 7:15 PM. Cars will be assigned a time slot based on preference and availability. Diners are instructed to pull up to the building at 149 Genesee St . Dinners will be brought to your car.
- Video Presentation: The video has been prercorded. Father Jim Adams will honor the recipients of this year’s Community Award for Extraordinary Support for Music and the Arts to Geneva’s Legott Family and the Distinguished Alumni Award to Waterloo High School graduate Changhee Lee. The video link will be shared with ticket holders and allows viewers to watch at a time most convenient for them. The video will also include an update on the capital campaign and a sneak peek at the renovations that have taken place at the Academy over the past several months.
- Silent Auction: This year’s Silent Auction will be held online starting on March 26. The auction will close on April 12 at 9:00 pm. Winners will be able to schedule times to come to the church and pick up their items.
The annual dinner raises funds for the Community Arts Academy operations and financial aid fund. Tickets are $75 with an option to purchase a bottle of Finger Lakes red or white wine. Sponsorship opportunities and Friend of the Arts contributions are available by contacting 315-789-0106. More information is available at stpetersarts.org.
St. Peter’s Community Arts Academy offers lessons and performances in choirs, piano, violin, cello, organ, voice, dance and guitar for all ages and now serves more than 300 students from 16 area schools in a five-county area in large part due to the dedicated core of instructors and staff, all of whom are professionals in their field. Embracing its theme of “Arts for All,” the St. Peter’s Community Arts Academy is open to students of all ages and levels of skill regardless of financial means or religious affiliation. Offerings will be expanded and enhanced in renovated space with an extensive Capital Campaign currently under way.
