Lively Arts at IUP rolls out its new community support program “Lively
Collaborations” as it partners with the Indiana County NAACP the night of the
upcoming Black Violin performance at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 8, at Fisher
Auditorium in the IUP Performing Arts Center.
very excited to kick off our new Lively Collaborations program with such a
well-respected group as the Indiana County NAACP,” said Kristen Koehler,
executive director of the Lively Arts.
main component of the partnering program is to issue the partnering nonprofit organization
a special discount code which would entitle a patron to $4 off per ticket
(limit two tickets per patron) for the event that the organization has reserved. For
every $4 discount issued, a $2 donation will be made to the nonprofit.
code for the Indiana County NAACP is “NAACP4” for the Black Violin concert.
This code can be entered in the discount box with online orders, or given to the
Lively Arts ticket agent with orders made over the phone or in person. (Discount
cannot be applied to already-purchased tickets.)
County NAACP looks forward to this fundraiser collaboration with the Lively
Arts at IUP for the performance with Black Violin,” said Roger Briscoe,
vice president of the Indiana County NAACP.
Lively Collaborations program was announced this summer in the season brochure
with the hopes of attracting the interest of local nonprofit organizations
looking for a new—and entertaining—way to create funds to support their
cause. In addition to the discount code that members can share with their
volunteers, family, and friends, members are invited to set up a table in the
lobby where they can share information about their organization during the
night of the performance.
look forward to working with the NAACP and many other nonprofit organizations
in our community. It is an honor to help support the important work that these
organizations do to help make our community a wonderful place to work and live,”
Lively Collaborations include the Westsylvania Jazz and Blues Festival and the
Indiana Arts Council for 7:00 p.m. Sunday, December 3, the night that the Hot
Sardines are at Fisher Auditorium.
