ORLANDO, Fla. — Rep. Val Demings presented $250,000 in federal funds to the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts Monday.
This donation will support its Arts for Every Life education programs to offer students access to quality art education.
“What is life without art?” Demings said. “Every child in our community, no matter their background, should have a chance to access classes and camps that give them a chance to learn and grow and follow their passion.”
The following educational programs impact over 100,000 individuals annually across the region:
- Disney Musicals in Schools
- Applause Awards
- 6th & Jazz
- Project WoW
- Summer Camps
- Youth Theater Productions
- Four Counts
- Quarter Notes
- Teen Ambassadors
Dr. Phillips Center Chairman Jim Pugh said this funding will provide opportunities for students to share their talents with the community and beyond.
Students from Dr. Phillips’ summer camp program also attended the presentation.
Demings announced in March that the Community Project Initiative will provide over $6 million in federal funding to various organizations, including the Dr. Phillips Center.
