Positively Arts Foundation’s Partnership with Rock to the Rescue at the Venetian

Positively Arts Foundation is teaming up with Rock to the Rescue, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded by rock bands Styx and REO Speedwagon, for 5 nights to donate guitar raffle funds during Styx and Don Felder’s five-night run at The Venetian Theatre. The show, “Styx & Don Felder: Renegades In The Fast Lane,” kicks off Friday, January 6 inside The Venetian® Las Vegas.

Each night, Rock to the Rescue will raffle off an Epiphone Les Paul Junior guitar signed by members of the band as well as Don Felder. A portion of the proceeds will benefit PAF and be dedicated to using the arts to empower, inspire and heal.  The remaining proceeds will be donated to Rock to the Rescue, a nonprofit that builds strong, healthy communities through the support of grassroots causes across the country.

To enter the raffle, attendees must purchase a commemorative guitar pick for $10 from the Rock to the Rescue booth located on the Parterre level of the Venetian Theatre or from a Positively Arts Foundation volunteer prior to the start of the show. At the end of each show, a band member will draw a guitar pick and one lucky winner will get to take home an invaluable piece of history.

Styx & Don Felder: Renegades In The Fast Lane will be held on January 6, 7, 11, 13 and 14, 2017. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchase at www.Venetian.com/StyxFelder.

Visiting Sunrise Children’s Hospital

Positively Arts Foundation, in collaboration with Win-Win Entertainment, and Broadway Dreamers students set out to empower, inspire, and heal through the arts at Sunrise Children’s Hospital.

Thank you to Win-Win Entertainment for the following recap of the trip:

“The Dreamers gave it their all as they visited room-to-room, in what was easily one of our most emotional visits. And they did so as though they were seasoned professionals.

The Broadway Dreamers sang “Let It Go” to a young patient as her mom and family members who were visiting, only wept as she sang along.
They sang “Hakuna Matata” to a young boy, as his mom’s eyes filled with tears watching him enjoy the performance. Our last visit was exceptionally difficult as we visited our young friend who has been in the pediatric oncology floor for 11 consecutive months. She was not feeling well but asked to have the Dreamers sing as she kept her eyes closed. The group showed such grace and compassion. It was a beautiful exchange, we all fought back tears.”

We love making a difference in our community!

Positively Arts Foundation (PAF) is a 501c3 non-profit bringing today’s professional artists together with aspiring students to ensure that the performing arts continue to thrive despite the financial difficulties that so many schools are forced to navigate. Working hand-in-hand with the CCSD School-Community Partnership Office, PAF is able to identify the schools most at-risk and in need of arts intervention programs. PAF’s mission is to create enrichment programs that use the arts to EMPOWER, INSPIRE, and HEAL. EMPOWER by using the performing arts to engender confidence and leadership skills within students. INSPIRE by connecting current professional Broadway, Cirque Du Soleil, and Disney performers with aspiring young artists in the community. Through benefit concerts, these young students actually get the opportunity to perform alongside these professionals, actualizing their dreams in front of packed audiences.

HEAL through Harvard-developed arts integration programs designed to tap into the limbic system, the emotion center, of the brain. The founder of PAF received her Masters in Education from Harvard University in 2005 and along with other Harvard Board Members, they design programs geared towards serving students struggling with learning developmental disorders.
