OAKHURST – Looking for a family-friendly evening of outstanding entertainment in support of arts for kids, served with a side of baked potato? Look no further, and plan to attend the Vision Academy of the Arts Showcase of Artists, set for Saturday, Mar. 12, at Oakhurst Elementary School, in the multi-purpose room, from 6:30 – 9 p.m.
The evening of entertainment, arts and friendship features students who are high school seniors and potential recipients of Vision Academy community scholarships, who will showcase their talents throughout the night.
The cost to attend is $10 per person, and all proceeds go into the scholarship fund.
In addition to compelling performances by hopeful scholarship recipients, guests can look forward to an exciting live auction to enhance the fundraising. There’s also a delicious baked potato bar for dinner offered with sparkling cider.
While the Showcase of Artists is the evening expected to raise the most support for the organization and its ongoing efforts to keep youth arts alive in the foothills, Vision Academy also raises money through concerts, classes and camps.
Anyone interested in applying for a Vision Academy scholarship must contact Jackie Byers or Sheila Adams and make a presentation at the Showcase of Artists event in order to participate further.
On the big night, scholarship applicants will introduce themselves while laying out their plans for college or perhaps explaining their pursuit of Broadway’s footlights.
Vision Academy of the Arts has been a welcome constant in the mountains for over 20 years, and students at three high schools now benefit from the Vision Academy scholarship program, according to the long-time arts advocate.
“We hope everybody will make plans to attend this event, because the more people who come and share, the more we can do,” says Adams.
