The Endicott Performing Arts Center presents a talent showcase and basket raffle every year. All proceeds from the showcase and raffle will benefit the Devin Spears Memorial Scholarship Fund. The fund awards scholarships to local graduating high school seniors pursuing higher education in the arts.
The EPAC Devin Spears Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Devin Spears, a member of the EPAC Kids Theater Workshop who starred as Dorothy in the workshop's 2001 production of "The Wiz." Devin and her mother Valerie were tragically killed in 2002. Since its inception, the EPAC Devin Spears Scholarship Fund has awarded more than $41,700 in scholarships to local graduating high school seniors.
The basket raffle starts during the Devin Spears showcase and will be raffled off during every EPAC show through April 29th, when the basket Winners will be drawn at the final performance of the Kids Theater Workshop.
This years showcase will be Saturday, February 24 at 8 p.m. General Admission tickets are available at the EPAC Box office, or the online. Call (607) 785-8903 for more information.
Graduating high school seniors pursuing a career in the arts should contact their high school guidance counselor or EPAC for scholarship application forms for 2018. Call (607) 785-8903 for more information or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those wishing to contribute to the Devin Spears Scholarship Fund can donate a gift basket to be raffled or send donations payable to EPAC Devin Spears Scholarship Fund, 102 Washington Ave., Endicott, NY.
