Arts Council Northeast Newsletter - October 2014

Arts and Entertainment

October 13, 2014

From: Arts Council Northeast


Several times a year, Whole Foods stores hold community giving days (otherwise known as "5% Days") where five percent of that day's net sales are donated to a local nonprofit or educational organization.

Arts Council Northeast will be the recipient of that five percent on Wednesday, October 15th, 10am-7pm, at the Whole Foods Market - 4801 Colleyville Blvd.

We hope you'll join us there next Wednesday for art demonstrations, live music and much more! You can buy your advance tickets to Taste of Northeast at our display table. Plan on doing your grocery shopping while in the store, and you'll help us fund our mission of making the arts accessible to all in our community.

Through our grant program, offered yearly, Arts Council Northeast is able to offer financial support for arts-related programs in North Tarrant and Southern Denton Counties. Since 1997, Arts Council Northeast has partnered with the Texas Commission on the Arts in generating over $1.4 million in funds spent in support of the arts in our communities.
Raising money for the arts is an ongoing commitment and service that Arts Council Northeast provides through matching grants from the Texas Commission on the Arts and fundraising events that occur throughout the year. Projects the grant money has helped fund include Young People's Concerts in HEB ISD, Special Weekend for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at Imagination Celebration (BISD), and Keller Oral History Project. Trinity Arts Guild, Regal Opera Company, the Northeast Orchestra, and the Van Cliburn Foundation are also past recipients of grants from Arts Council Northeast.
