TheGifted Arts held its annual fundraiser August 6. TheGifted Arts is an organization that uses performing arts to help students of color build skills in leadership, communication, teamwork and problem-solving while also creating leadership pathways for students who might not have the oppor- tunity otherwise. With schools operating virtually as well as in person this school year, TheGifted Arts plans to open day programming that will give students of full-time, essential workers a safe place to go for on-site tutoring and mentorship. The goal of this year’s fundraiser was to secure a larger, permanent home for this endeavor.
