Contributions can come in one of several forms, such as a piece of art, a photograph, music lessons, pottery or hand-made clothing or jewelry.

All proceeds fund the school's student activities fund, which is designated to foster education through any and all art forms.

The school looks forward to Gala 2002 being more successful than ever. People interested in donating can call 463-3336 to make arrangements.

The Juneau Community Charter School is grateful for the support of all artists in Juneau, and appreciates their contribution to the artistic well-being of our community and children.
