Benefits the WADA Arts Education Center December 1, 2020

    WADA has raised $225,000 to build an Arts Education Center at the ArtsXchange Campus.

    The groundbreaking is happening in early 2021. We are thrilled.

    The Frances McSwain Pruitt and J. Crayton Pruitt Arts Education Center, will house a dance studio and three classrooms to serve local youth and adults from South St. Petersburg neighborhoods including Midtown and The Deuces.

    Funds raised buy chairs, desks, white boards and technical equipment to furnish the classrooms. Imagine the joy of children experiencing the creation of art.

    Goal = $13,800

    We invite you to be part of a thriving arts community that supports access to the arts for all individuals.

    Together we can make this happen.

    "Gratitude – the simple and profound feeling of being thankful,is the foundation of generosity." And we are grateful for your generosity
