BOEING GIVES TO ARTS FOUNDATION GETS $9,500 DONATION.
LANCASTER - The Boeing Company has donated $9,500 to the Lancaster Performing Arts Center Foundation for the Arts for Youth program.
The donation brings the company's total donations to the LPAC Foundation to more than $51,000.
``The Boeing Company contributes to local schools, museums, theaters and nonprofit organizations in the Antelope Valley,'' said Barbara Greene, community and customer relations administrator. ``It is our pleasure to assist the LPAC Foundation any way we can.''
Lancaster Performing Arts Center Foundation board President Lou Bozigian accepted the donation, which was presented by Gary Matlin, flight test director for the CV-22 Osprey.
The Arts for Youth program reduces ticket prices for special daytime performances attended by students from area schools, serving more than 20,000 students annually. The program also provides supplemental instructional materials for teachers.
Arts for Youth also supports the annual Summer Theatre Program, a three-week play production course for students ages 12 to 18.
The Lancaster Performing Arts Center is operated by the city of Lancaster's Parks, Recreation and Arts Department.
