Dear Community Member,
Perform 4 Purpose is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that aims to provide youth with the opportunity to experience the arts through skill building and performance opportunities. We also seek to instill the importance of giving back to the community in our performers by holding fundraising events for local organizations in need. We offer three programs: summer camps, music mentor clubs, and fundraising events. We currently hold music mentor clubs in districts across Cayuga County: Moravia (Millard Fillmore Elementary and Moravia Middle School), Union Springs (Union Springs Middle School), and the Montessori School of the Finger Lakes. We are honored to have partnered with Auburn Public Theater and Booker T. Washington Community Center to help bring mentor clubs into the Auburn School District (Casey Park Elementary, Genesee Elementary, Seward Elementary, Auburn Junior High School, and Booker T. Washington Community Center). We also provide students with scholarships to attend these programs, as well as other arts-based programs in the community. In collaboration with other community organizations, such as Majorpalooza, Ignite, NAACP, and Tomato Fest, our performers have participated in events that have raised over $500,000.
Over the past five years, with the help of local businesses and community members, we raised over $40,000 to support Perform 4 Purpose programs at our annual Perform 4 Purpose Gala. On Friday, October 12, 2018, we will be hosting our 6th Annual Perform 4 Purpose Gala. This fundraising event will feature music by Perform 4 Purpose Performers followed by Parents 4 Purpose, a band of parents following in the footsteps of their talented kids! It will also include a buffet dinner, a cash bar, a silent auction, raffles, and a wine pull at Springside Inn beginning at 6:30pm. All proceeds from this event will help fund Perform 4 Purpose programs.
We are seeking sponsorships and donations for this fundraiser. All donations are 100% tax deductible. If you are willing to graciously donate to this event, please fill out the attached form and return to your Gala Committee contact conveniently listed on the attached form.
Thank you for your support, and helping us help the community one performance at a time.
