On behalf of the Vance county Arts Council we would like to thank all of the companies, individuals, and organizations that donated during the spring of 2023 Support the Arts campaign.  Through your generosity we were able to sponsor many programs free to the community.

We also thank all who participated, as well as members and friends; without you this evening would not have been possible.
