Spring fundraiser launches Arts Council’s Scholarship Fund

The Westlake-Westshore Arts Council adds another jewel to its’ crown by making an investment in art for the future in the form of a Arts Scholarship Fund, which will get its first infusion of monies from the group’s April 21 fundraiser.

Festa di Primavera (Spring Celebration and Feast), the April 21, event is from 1 to 4 p.m. at Daddona’s Fine Italian Restaurant, 29580 Center Ridge Road, Westlake. It will have a backdrop of spring colors with an Italian flavor. WWAC Co-presidents Betty Lou Curatolo and Patt Long said personal and business sponsorships are welcome and those received by March 31 will be included in the event program.

This event extends an invitation to enjoy an Italian feast with friends, meet new friends, enjoy violinist Mary Beth Ions, participate in auctions and raffles and support the WWAC’s strong commitment for funding all aspects of art, which now includes its scholarship fund designed to provide monetary scholarships to students pursuing a higher education in the Arts.

The WWAC’s establishment of an Arts Scholarship Fund was given careful consideration and included input from the Cleveland Foundation. The wording of the motion creating the fund states: “The first goal of the W-WAC Arts Scholarship fund is to raise the $10,000 necessary to endow the project, so that it can be administered, promoted, and managed by the Cleveland Foundation. Once that amount of capital is raised, the W-WAC can begin awarding yearly scholarships at the board’s discretion.”

The annual fundraiser provides support for all of the group’s endeavors, but private donors have the option of designating which WWAC program their monies will benefit. In addition to the scholarship fund, WWAC supports arts programs, public art, and a future home for the WWAC where art programming could flourish.

The WWAC’s dedication and funding of art in all forms, for all ages, merits support.
