The “Purpose of this Party” is to raise money for the Carson Center, which is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit regional performing arts center. Approximately 30% of the center’s annual funding comes from fundraising events, contributions, sponsorships, and grants. When you buy tickets and tables – you support arts-education for children and youth, performances for audiences of all ages, Broadway musicals, big-name concerts, and other performing artists and theatre groups from across our nation and around the world. Fundraising events and contributions help us to involve more schools and families from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds. Most of the ticket/table cost is tax-deductible as a contribution to the Carson Center as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit performing arts center.
