Well, all we can say is: Wow! The Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy’s February 8 benefit to raise funds for ONE and Naume in Uganda was INCREDIBLE! Music, dance, poetry, singing and a rockin’ student band… It was so much fun and these wonderful students raised almost $700! A huge THANK YOU to the National Honor Society students who organized it, to the Advanced Performing Arts students who performed, and to all the artists who donated artwork to sell. We are so grateful, and so excited that you are in our community and in the world. Such talent and passion was a delight to see! A couple of those dance numbers made us cry, they were so beautiful. Thanks to all the people who came out to support FALA and ONE, and especially to all the parents in the audience who nurture and support the arts and their children’s creative spirits. Thanks to Firecreek Coffee Company in Flagstaff, for letting us take over their space and running the sound. AND A VERY SPECIAL THANK YOU TO KATE COLLETTE, the extraordinary 15 year old who spearheaded and MC’d the whole thing. Very impressive!
