The Thea Foundation's mission is to help the youngest Arkansans have access to the arts in school. Their Blue Plate Special event is Monday. Thea representative Stacy Bowers was in studio with Sweet Love Chef Kelli Marks to tell us more about their goals for this fun night.
Thea Foundation’s Blue Plate Special returns to the Capital Hotel Monday, October 16, 2017, with ten local chefs and two mixologists, accompanied by local artists, musicians, and the music of the Dr. Danny Fletcher and Co.
Thea Foundation’s mission is to advocate the importance of the arts in the development of Arkansas's youth. Our programs are designed to help youth find confidence through creative expression, during and after school. Thea Foundation has awarded close to $2.25 million in scholarships to Arkansas high school seniors, distributed more than $1.5 million in art supplies to underfunded schools and implemented many programs that provide creative experiences for Arkansas's youth.
Proceeds from the Blue Plate Special will benefit Thea Foundation and support its mission to ensure that all Arkansas students have access to the arts. Additionally, the Charles A. Frueauff Foundation has offered a challenge grant of $25,000 to match the first $25,000 raised by the Blue Plate Special.
Individual tickets to the Blue Plate Special are $75 and are available online at theafoundation.org/blue-plate-special or by phone at (501) 379-9512.
