So for the last two summers, my days have been filled working with a wonderful company called ETC, the Educational Theatre Company. They run a host of summer camps and year-round programs which offer excellent opportunities for children of all ages to take part in the performing arts in Arlington and Falls Church. This year, they are taking part in the United Way’s Do More 24.
Do More 24 is a one-day, 24-hour fundraiser encouraging donors to give to charities in the Greater DC area. At 12:00am on June 26th, the campaign will begin, and will run until 11:59pm that night. In that span, ETC is trying to raise $3000 to help support our various programs throughout the year.
These programs range from from helping students at ESOL schools build confidence through their Mainstage Residency Programs to collaborating with the community through our Creative Age courses with various senior programs. As we gear up for our intense summer season, we’re looking at over a dozen different camps, ranging from one to two weeks, with students ranging from pre-K through high school.
They’re an excellent program with the central goal of Changing Lives through the Arts. If you’ve got time this Thursday, spread the word, and help this excellent Arlington based organization reach its goal of $3000.
