Enrich the Life of a Child

The Asheville Arts Center needs your help.

Jerry McIntyre instructing the Asheville Art's Center's Academy Students

This past November we were able to bring in Broadway actor, Jerry McIntyre (an original cast member of Once On This Island) to work with our most talented group of theatre students. We were only able to bring this incredible opportunity to our students because of the Arts Center’s relationship with Sans Souci Cabaret. Put simply, donations to Sans Souci made this possible for our students.

Without your help, Sans Souci won’t be able to make grants as generously as they have before – and some children won’t have the chance to learn from top-level, professional artists.

Now is the time for you to make sure that Asheville’s youth get to take advantage of any and every opportunity they can!

Sans Souci Cabaret, Inc.,a non-profit group dedicated to expanding and increasing the quality of arts education, is raising money for the Asheville Arts Center’s Scholarship fund.As 2009 comes to a close, Sans Souci is once again partnering up with the Asheville Arts Center in order to provide scholarships to children in our Asheville community who might not normally be able to afford classes.

The arts and music make such a difference in the life of a child. Increasing math and language skills, building self confidence and preparing them to be more successful in life are just a few of the benefits children who study the arts typically display.

Currently about 20% of our student base is on a scholarship of some kind and we’d love to continue this, while reaching out to more children. Did you know, in our Academy program alone, over half of our students are on full or partial scholarships? We believe all children should have the opportunities and means to grow in the arts while building confidence and self-esteem.

    Hey, Carol. You should try contacting the Asheville Arts Center at 253-4000. Someone should be able to help you find out what you need. We’re always happy to help, too!
