We would also like to extend a special thanks to everyone that visited the Arts Boosters Concessions to buy a treat or a flower, and to those who donated directly to the Moore Square Arts Boosters fundraising effort. We are close to 50% of reaching our goal and will again look to you and yours to get to 100%.
