ArtsBuild (formerly Allied Arts) will partner with the Flying Squirrel Bar on Tuesday, Aug. 5, to raise funds for its leadership programs.
The Flying Squirrel, at 55 Johnson St. in Chattanooga’s Southside district, will donate 10 percent of its total sales from the evening, from 5 p.m. to closing, to ArtsBuild. Founded as a united arts fund in 1969, ArtsBuild’s mission is to build a stronger community through the arts.
“We are excited to join with the Flying Squirrel to host this fundraising event," said Rodney Van Valkenburg, ArtsBuild's director of grants and initiatives.
"All of the money raised that night will directly benefit ArtsBuild’s leadership programs. The annual Holmberg Arts Leadership Institute, now in its 10th year, is probably our best-known leadership program. However, we also have the Holmberg Institute for Teachers, Regenerate for high school students, and the Chattanooga Young Artistic Network for arts-minded young professionals.”
There is no charge to attend the event. For more information, visit ArtsBuild’s Facebook page, www.artsbuild.com
