You can have a BIG IMPACT on May 15, 2013!
The Seattle Foundation is hosting ĎGive BIGí Ė an opportunity to support local non-profits such as APL in one day of online giving! This year, APL aims to raise $10,000 to cover the cost of the annual theater arts program provided by Broadway Bound. Students benefit from weekly theater enrichment which culminates with performances every spring. Thanks to a generous donation from the Schools for Spectrum Foundation, we only need to raise $9,000 more to cover the cost of the program! View APLís profile on the Seattle Foundation site to learn how you can participate from midnight to midnight on May 15, 2013. Spread the word!
APL partners with Broadway Bound producing some spectacular music and theater productions each and every spring. Broadway Bound provides a necessary creative outlet, challenging students to develop their mental, physical, emotional, social and creative potential. Stay tuned for details about APLís upcoming spring performances this year: Aladdin, Oliver & Hamlet!
