Valley Performing Arts Center continues to raise money

— Valley Performing Arts Center has set an ambitious goal of raising $30,000 to renovate the new location.

Valley Performing Arts Center has recently acquired the former Bank of America building.

The $30,000 in 30 Days campaign was launched to renovate the building into a functional space for a variety of activities.

The classes offered include tumbling, hip hop dancing, singing lessons, Valley Children’s Choir, SunKid’s Choir, private and group piano classes, and ballet.

The center is also offering summer camp programs separated by age group.

The three to five year age group will be apart of the Pirates and Princesses themed camp. The camp will be 10 a.m. to noon, July 16-19.

From 10 a.m. to noon on July 23-26, the kinder to 5th grade group will be at the Carnival of the Animals themed camp.

The 6th to 12th grade age group will be able to participate in MasterClass Workshops from July 30 to Aug. 2 from 10 a.m. to noon.

To raise the money, the center is hosting FUNraisers. The most recent one was a Krispy Kreme Donut sale on July 4.

They sold 63 dozen donuts and all of the funds raised will go toward the $25,000 tumbling mats the center will be installing at the new location.

On July 10, Brady Sells Pan Dulce will be Brady riding around on his bike selling pan dulce from Pepe’s Bakery door to door.

There will be two outdoor movie nights, one in July and one in August.

“We rely heavily on volunteers and donations, we’ve had sound equipment and a piano donated to us, it’s not necessarily a monetary donation,” said Michelle Singleterry, business manager of the center.

“Every dollar and donation counts.”

The center is also offering the ability to purchase safety deposit boxes. The safety deposit boxes will be displayed in the lobby of the finished building, with the names of donors and businesses.
