All attendees will have a limited tour of the .Zack before its official opening in January, while they mingle with artists and arts-supporters. VIPs will enjoy hors d’oeuvres catered by David Kirkland, formerly of Café Osage. Guests will also be treated to performances by exceptional talent from the A4AC network including Washington University Director of Strings, Amy Greenhalgh; Classical Guitarist, Patrick Rafferty, Grand Center Arts Academy’s “Not Your Forte” advanced a cappella group directed by Wes Smith, and two exceptional youth solo singers, Olivia Bosaw and Arielle Pedersen. This year, A4AC will launch four of its programs to the St. Louis Area. The programs include: Dance for Food which produces dance showcase performances to feed the needy where admission is nonperishable food donations; A4AC School Clubs which enable artistically-inclined high school students to use their talents to better their communities; Therapeutic Arts Outreach which engages musicians to bring the healing power of music to those who wouldn’t be able to access it otherwise; and Support for Charities Copyright © 2016 - All rights reserved.

where A4AC manages the relationship between visual and performing artists and the charities they support, helping all parties get the most out of their collaboration. “We are thrilled to have been selected to reside at the .Zach as we expand our programs into the Greater St. Louis area,” said Terry Barber, internationally acclaimed countertenor and founder of Artists for a Cause. “We are replicating our most successful programs which have had impact in Florida for over five years, bringing them to St. Louis to fill specific needs. We want to thank St. Louis’ great arts organizations that have been very supportive, recognizing the niche we fill. The artists in our network will use their talent to make St. Louis even better, by addressing critical needs like poverty, health concerns and more.”

“We would also like to extend a special thank you to Ken and Nancy Kranzberg for the gift of the .Zack which will be home to so many performing arts companies, a perfect opportunity for our collaborative organization”. Also noteworthy is that Artists for a Cause has received a matching gift challenge from board member Steve Clark and his wife Alison. The Clark’s have pledged $6,000 to match the “Be a Fan” (Fund A Need) gifts received at the event, www.the-arts-today.com
