Friends of SPAC

The Friends of SPAC are arts-loving volunteers. As ambassadors, the committee promotes SPAC membership at all levels. The committee connects young people with world-class arts events and education, ensuring the vitality of SPAC and the arts. Activities include community outreach and fundraising that support SPAC’s mission.  

Volunteer opportunities:  

  • First Friday networking events
  • SPAC programming
  • Live Nation concerts
  • Community events, and more! 

The Friends of SPAC Committee is invested in assuring the future of SPAC. SPAC has exponentially increased the number of educational offerings to the community, especially for local children, in the pursuit of the belief that every child should have the opportunity to experience the arts. All funds raised by Friends of SPAC’s efforts directly contribute to arts education and programming for local children.
