Help a young artist on the move!
Hello all, My name is Courtney J. Whitley (but you can call me Coco J). I am a proud senior in the theater department at Duke Ellington school for the arts. As you may or may not know, we have an annual fundraiser called "March for the Arts". The purpose of this fundraiser is to raise money for our department, to fund our artistic teachers/ faculty, field trips, equipment, master classes, shows etc. Every year the student who raises the most money wins a huge incentive. Last years prize was to visit the set of Oprah Winfrey's Greenleaf with Desa Alumn and profound Actor Lamman Rucker. DCPS does not fund our arts program and because of that we have to fund it ourselves. as a committed and passionate artist, I would love nothing more than to have the best year ever. I am so thankful for how this institution had molded me. This profound arts academy is so special to me. I have grown so much over the four years I've been here. I want to give back to my department by raising my goal of 4,000. This will ensure I have the best Senior year yet, and continue me on my artistic path. as a young artist, I value the mentorship of all arts faculty and teachers. The love I have for this school for the Actress I've become cannot be described. My heart is so full because of the many things I've gained since being here.
Your donation to me would be truly appreciated. #2020
Help this young artist keep moving!
Thank you in advance!
TO SUPPORT YOUNG THEATRE ARTISTS ON THE MOVE
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.
