Emergency Appeal for Membership/Donations! – from Tomm Polos ’06

I was going to fill this plea with zingers, but there’s nothing funny about a John Jay without ArtsALIVE.

ArtsALIVE’s funds, which go entirely toward arts-related programming for the students of John Jay High School, are perilously low. Although their fall theatrical fund-raising event was a success, they are still $12,000 short of what they need this year. That amount sounds like a lot, but if 300 people paid $40 for yearly membership, they’d hit their goal.

Please consider donating any amount: $40, $20, even $10 or $5 helps ArtsALIVE, gets great programming into the current student body, and don’t forget: IT’S TAX-DEDUCTIBLE for you!

How do you donate? There is a paypal button right on the homepage of this swanky new website:

They will be posting more information here about this year’s programs.

Thanks for your support!
