Thank you to all who made
Big Night In for the Arts
such a success!
Big Night In for the Arts was not just BIG, it was HUGE! On Thursday March 11, 35,000 viewers tuned in to WRAL-TV to celebrate the arts with us. With the help of 600 corporate sponsors and individual donors, Big Night In for the Arts raised more than $350,000!
Your support will help the arts industry of the Triangle begin a path to recovery post-pandemic. Proceeds will fund arts programming, initiatives for equity in the arts, and arts relief efforts.
And you can still make a donation through the online portal.
This star-studded evening celebrating the Triangle arts community was presented by United Arts, Chatham Arts Council, Durham Arts Council, and Orange County Arts Commission, with
