The Lee County Bar Association’s (LCBA) Fifth Annual Charity Golf Tournament, sponsored by Roetzel & Andress, was an enormous success. On September 18th, the LCBA presented a check for $20,500 to benefit the Alliance for the Arts’ Youth Scholarships and ArtReach educational programming.
“The arts are a critical necessity in our society, not a luxury. As Bar President, I feel that helping children acquire arts knowledge and hands-on theatrical experiences is a significant contribution to cultivating the next generation of leaders,” said LCBA President and arts supporter, Anne Dalton, Esq.
The Alliance for the Arts is the county’s local arts nonprofit dedicated to infusing the community with arts programming through a diverse, innovative and balanced program of performances, events, community building and educational projects that reaches the widest possible audience. The Alliance’s ARTreach program offers people of all ages and economic levels the opportunity to participate in artistic and cultural endeavors, mentorship opportunities, and provides a healthy and safe environment. Engaging the arts is proven to increase self-esteem and enhance quality of life.
“We are honored to be the beneficiary of the LCBA’s annual golf tournament. The funds they raised will be an enormous help in our mission to bring the arts to children who might not otherwise have the chance. We truly believe in the arts and can’t thank the LCBA enough for believing in our mission.” said Alliance Executive Director, Lydia Black.
