The Arc of Seneca Cayuga’s Spot Light Studio was the recipient of $664, courtesy of the Auburn Players.
In late July, the Players presented "Avenue Q" and during "The Money Song", the cast traditionally goes into the audience to pass the hat and raise money for a cause dear to their hearts. The cast of "Avenue Q" decided that they wanted to support people with disabilities who share the common interest of performing.
Arc of Seneca Cayuga's 19th annual golf tournament, held on August 1st at Highland Park Golf Club in Auburn, netted more than $29,000 to support underfunded programs and services.
Those services include Camp Columbus, the agency's summer camp on Owasco Lake, as well as the Rurual Autism Initiative for individuals living in the Finger Lakes region.
If you’re out and about in Auburn on First Friday (September 2nd), you won’t want to miss the 8th Annual Studio Portfolio and Exhibition, hosted by Spot Light Studio. The exhibition will be open from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm at 39 Genesee Street when you can meet and greet the artists. All artwork will be for sale with the proceeds going to the artist; music will be provided by Bob Piorun.
Ed Sayles, Community Relations Director for Arc of Seneca Cayuga has announced that the agency has received a grant from the John Ben Snow Foundation in the amount of $6,000.
Arc will use this money to enhance programs at Arc’s Spot Light Studio (Formerly F.A.M.E.)
