Fundraising in 2020-2021
SPARC has been hard at work creating COVID-friendly ways to continue to support the performing arts. This fall we launched our first-ever #GivingTuesday campaign and participated in Pizza Vita's Giving Tree 2020 give-back promotion. Thanks to the very generous Summit community, both of these efforts exceeded our expectations!
We took to the virtual world with SPARC'ling Evening of Spontaneity - a night of comedy, music and improv that aired Live on YouTube this past February. The night was emcee'd by multi-talented, musician, comedian and improv actor, Rob Schiffmann and featured performances and games by Summit students, audience interviews, improv songs and a special visit from Telly Leung, who you may know as Aladdin from Aladdin or as many other characters ranging in shows from Godspell, Rent, Glee, Allegiance, Wicked, and more! The night was so much fun and wildly successful, thanks to our corporate sponsors, event partners and the generosity of the Summit community!
Each Spring, SPARC honors graduating seniors at a Senior Salute Ceremony and hosts a Meet the Performing Arts Coaches forum for rising middle and high school students.
