Update on Our Donation Campaign
OPA friends and family, we could not be more excited to be moving forward into 2019! We are so grateful to all of you who donated, shared our posts, and offered words of kindness. We know that a fundraising campaign of this nature comes with a great deal of fear and uncertainty, but the support you have shown reassures us that we are not alone. As we continued through our days with classes running, production rehearsals, and Christmas performances, there was a heaviness that lingered knowing it could have been the end of so many amazing experiences and opportunities. However, with your help and significant donations, we can move forward with new and exciting things in store. Not only have we survived, we believe we are in a new position that will make OPA better than ever! As we move forward, we do so with the promise to keep our passion and commitment to continue to serve the community with arts education. Once again, we encourage and welcome you to reach out with questions. We look forward to what the future brings and thank you again for your continued support!
