My name is Shamir Riley. I am an aspiring actor and a 10th grade student at Duke Ellington School of the Arts (DESA). While DESA inspires bright young minds like me to excel, we need your help to support talented students who might not otherwise have an opportunity to develop their artistic skills. So, every year we "March for the Arts" to help raise money for scripts, master classes, field trips, supplies, and production costs (sets, props, lights, costumes). We need these resources to navigate DESAs demanding program of arts and academic, and to ensure continued and necessary training for Arts education.


Your donation will make this possible and I appreciate your support through my campaign as it will impact my future work that can provide equal opportunities for me to learn, grow, and influence Arts. My minimum goal is $700 but if I get to $1,000, I could qualify for additional incentives. Also, if you are interested in attending "March for the Arts" to have some serious fun and see the performances, our main event is on Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 10AM to 1PM at DESA. By the way, your donations are totally tax deductible (EIN: 31-1705384). 





March for the Arts, formerly the Walk of Fame, is the

CELEBRATE WITH US ON OCTOBER 26 AT OUR ANNUAL

MARCH FOR THE ARTS FESTIVAL

ALL ARE WELCOME!

Georgetown’s history of mystery doesn’t deter counselors from setting up Camp Ellington at the historic Duke Ellington School of the Arts campus. All of the superstitious locals warn against it, but the young counselors pay little heed to the old timers. Campers try to enjoy activities like moon bounces, sack races, camp stories, delicious food and costume contests*, but mysteriously they keep disappearing. “Who will survive and what will be left of them?”


Come join the fun and help solve the mystery at Camp Ellington on Saturday, October 26th from 10-1pm. Guests will participate in an arts festival and March through Georgetown with performances and events from classic horror films. “Be afraid. Be very afraid.” Fun for the whole family! We’re celebrating and “evil loves to party!”


*Come dressed in costume to enter our costume contest! Extra points given to entries dressed as their favorite horror film character.


Mark your calendar!
