BOEING GRANT FUNDS FOR ARTS.

Byline: Peggy Hager Staff Writer

PALMDALE - Four local education and arts groups have received $8,500 in grants from the Boeing Charitable Trust Fund.

The Antelope Valley College Foundation received $2,000, which will fund four $500 engineering scholarships.

The Antelope Valley Symphony Orchestra/Master Chorale received $2,000, which will help pay operating costs, and Cedar Street Theatre will spend its $2,000 contribution to bring low-income families to see their performances.

The Lancaster Performing Arts Center Foundation received $2,500 for its ``Arts for Youth'' program, which last year had 15,000 participants.

``Education in the arts is one of the mainstays for the the Charitable Foundation,'' said Ebe Winter, community relations officer for Boeing Reusable Space Systems in Palmdale. ``I represent a group of individuals that are just dynamite. The nice thing is we're able to give these resources.''

Boeing Reusable Space Systems will donate $200,000 to nonprofit organizations this year through its corporate offices, charitable foundation and employee donations, said Winter.
