Spotlight, Beck Center’s annual benefit
This year’s theme “Be Inspired!” highlights a part of our mission that we hold dear. We cherish the ability of the arts to provoke thoughts and feelings through experience and observation. Dance Education at Beck Center exemplifies this function, as it has had an immense impact on our community. This year our honorees are Lynda Sackett, founder of the dance program and outreach, teacher for over 50 years; Melanie Szucs, Associate Director of Dance, faculty member for over 35 years; and Betty Kemper, advocate and champion of our dance program. In show of our appreciation of our honorees, our guests at Spotlight will experience a night full of dance performances created and performed by our students.
The Spotlight Committee meets once a month and comes together to create an evening full of fun and friendship, all while raising funds to support the arts in our community. The committee helps with auction items, set up, decorations and overall theme. We would love for you to join us on the committee and become an advocate for Beck Center!
For more information on sponsorships, tickets, or how to become a member of the committee, contact any member of the Development Team. We hope to see you there!
