The L.M. Alcott Art Center Foundation is a

501(c)(3), 509(a)(2), Public Not For Profit Charity 

Held over for June’s First Friday the

Wyandotte Art Association Celebrating 50 Golden Years of Art in Wyandotte County.

We are very proud to have been honored as the place for the WAA to celebrate their 50th Year Anniversary and we are pleased to announce that the WAA will be exhibiting Artwork from their membership. The Exhibit at Alcott will end with this last evening showing starting at 6:30PM helping them mark their incredible milestone. Come meet the Artists and find out what their organization can offer you as a new member. The group held a silent auction on opening night with an assortment of goodies and gift baskets donated by from several of the Wyandotte Arts Association members and Alcott friends. The proceeds from the auction went to the Alcott. What an example to others; celebrating 50 years of service to Wyandotte County by raising money for another not for profit, in this case it's benefiting the Alcott.

                        This will be the last showing of this exhibit at the Alcott.

What a wonderful Night!
A note from the Alcott Board President: 
We would like to Thank All involved with this event. It was another example of how we are supported by the people that utilize and believe in our organization. 
As many of you know Alcott has been supported by donations, fundraisers, theatrical productions, sponsorships and by the one lone grant (BPU Community Development grant) that Alcott had sought and received.
It has come to our attention through a recent KCUR.com article that it gave the perception that Alcott gains it’s funds from it’s own fundraisers alone. This couldn’t be further from the truth!
We exist because of great people like Gary Barber and Debbie Goddard and many others over the years. 
Almost every fundraiser in the past fourteen years supporting the Alcott were presented and performed by others that believe in what Alcott offers and stands for and wanted to help raise funds through their Artistic skills.
There are many examples of how we are supported by others that our people will be making sure get the proper attention they deserve in the upcoming days. But the most important thing for everyone to know and that is that Alcott is not in this alone, that we want to and do work with others and that even though we are built to stand on our own footings, we want the financial support of others that believe in our message of inclusion for all. 
Gary and Debbie, along with their friends and families helped bring this event off without a hitch and we will always be grateful to them for that. We were all very well entertained and loved every minute and are fortunate to be able to call you our friends!

Thank you for being Alcott supporters!
