Arts Alive 2020: A Good Time for a Great Cause

08/12/2019 to 04/03/2020

06:00 pm - 09:00 pm




April 4, 2020



The Bay Education Foundation is proud to sponsor its tenth Arts Alive event on April 4, 2020, at Edgewater Beach Resort and Conference Center.  Arts Alive is a major fundraising event for the Bay Education Foundation. The proceeds from this event yield funding for the Take Stock in Children mentoring and scholarship program and for visual and performing art grants. 
The evening features a reception/silent auction, a student art gallery, a three-course meal, and a performing arts showcase. Our diverse performers, selected via audition, represent the best singers, dancers, and musicians that Bay District Schools has to offer.

"This is one of the most entertaining events I have ever attended,” says Jennifer Watson, event chairman.  ”I decided to become involved because the focus is on helping kids and because everyone has so much fun supporting a great cause.”  

In addition to raising funds, Arts Alive provides an excellent real- world learning opportunity for local students who choose to participate.  This audition process exposes students to professional standards and processes in the arts.  Performers who are cast in the show earn a boost to their self-confidence, knowing that they are part of a top-quality production.  

The Foundation relies on a generous community to bring scholarships and artistic activities to local students.  Proceeds from our overwhelmingly successful 2019 event impacted over 6,000 students in the grant program and changed lives forever in our Take Stock in Children program.  

Thank you in advance for your investment in a program that changes lives for the better by providing opportunity.
