“The arts are the best insurance policy a city can take on itself.”
–Woody Dumas, former Mayor of Baton Rouge
“The creative arts are the measure and reflection of our civilization. They offer many children an opportunity to see life with a larger perspective…The moral values we treasure are reflected in the beauty and truth that is emotionally transmitted through the arts. The arts say something about us to future generations.”
–Ann P. Kahn, Former President of The National PTA
If you’ve been keeping up with the Inland Empire Cupcake Fair, happening on March 17th, you know that proceeds from ticket sales benefit two local non-profit organizations; the Foothill Family Shelter and the California Riverside Ballet. IEShineOn.com is a proud special media supporter of the California Riverside Ballet. I’ve written about them before and their outreach program which helps enrich the Inland Empire community. Their outreach program is one of the reasons why I especially love CRB. They are active participants in the spread of Arts & Culture in the Inland Empire.
Their Ghost Walk Riverside event is a great example of how, through the Arts, a whole community can come together. The event is a fantastic family friendly Halloween event that takes over Downtown Riverside. Full of zombies, scary stories and a whole community dressed up
and taking advantage of the Downtown Riverside nightlife.
Working with CRB allows IEShineOn.com to contribute to a local non-profit Arts program, which is actually one of our missions: “to contribute to the economic and cultural well-being of the Inland Empire.”
I want to thank everyone at CRB, especially Susan Anderson (@adgrlsu), for working with IEShineOn.com on the Inland Empire Cupcake Fair. On March 17th, stop by their table and learn more about their outreach program and make sure you catch the dance performance by Danzanna Prodcutions on the main stage at the Cupcake Fair. Danzanna Productions is one of CRB’s community partners.
