Two years ago, on the 20th Anniversary of our television show, It’s All About Arts, we had a gala event. The event was a celebration as well as a kick off for our Youth Scholarship Program. We had many generous sponsors. After the event we were able to offer three - $500 scholarships to local youth. Our target is middle and high school kids. The money can be used for performing arts (dance or music) or art classes. Recently we held a fundraisers at the Rozzie Theatre in partnership with CSz Boston Comedy (April 2019) and at "Art in the Garden" at MIT Endicott House in Dedham on Sunday September 8, 2019. This past summer we funded three youth for a media camp at BNN Media. The scholarships are managed through the Roslindale Arts Alliance, with fiscal nonprofit status via Community Arts Advocates*.
