Our Third Annual Sponsorship Campaign began in October and ended in December. This is the Arts Council’s annual fund raising event to raise funds for our varied activities supporting the fine arts in our community. Currently WSAC has received $5030 in donations toward our goal of $8000! 100% of donations go to support art activities like the Southern Ozarks Community Orchestra, the Youth Orchestra, art camp for kids, and, art exhibits. If you haven’t made a donation, IT”S NOT TOO LATE!!! We encourage individuals, businesses and other organizations to make a donation to the arts council to help ensure events like these continue in our area.
