Betty J Gantz Foundation for the Performing Arts Afternoon Gala

Betty J Gantz Foundation for the Performing Arts Afternoon Gala

A newly formed nonprofit organization is on a mission to make dance education accessible to all people, especially children, who find joy in movement, regardless of skin color, age, body type, distance, financial expense, or other barriers that preclude inclusion in the arts.

As an introduction to the community, the organization is hosting a family-friendly fundraising inaugural gala featuring a performance by Rising Tides Dance Company, the nonprofit’s resident dance ensemble, reception and silent auction.

Donations raised from the gala will support future programming for the organization in the capital region, including community outreach via scholarships, educational presentations, local summer and after-school, and in-school programming for schools cutting arts education funding.

The nonprofit is currently seeking donors and sponsors to launch their programs that will enable disadvantaged youth to experience the magic of performance arts.

Tickets for their March 21, 2020, inaugural gala event are available at They are also seeking silent auction donation items for the event. To contribute, please email [email protected]
