Bravo! Vail is hosting its first Virtual Giving Gala in lieu of a traditional gala. The virtual gala is a fundraising event that includes three different ways to support Bravo! Vail and its programs. As a nonprofit, the world-class music festival’s relies on philanthropic help to support its mission, two thirds of which is dedicated to community education and outreach.
Every year, thousands of kids and adults experience the joy and inspiration of classical music through Bravo! Vail’s education and engagement programs, which provide meaningful interactions with world-class artists, hands-on experiences and in-depth talks. Year-round after-school programs in piano and violin, spring family concerts and financial support for aspiring young musicians aim to inspire and support the Vail Valley’s music-loving community.
“My children are able to attend these incredible concerts, meet accomplished musicians, touch and play violins, cellos, trumpets, and drums and learn to play the piano with the help of Bravo! Vail piano teachers in the community outreach programs,” says Cindy Goodwin, a mother of a piano student. “They are inspired to try things that may have otherwise been unattainable and get access to the support they need to do so.”
Here are three ways to participate in the Virtual Giving Gala:
1. Purchase a virtual ticket or table. Every virtual ticket and table purchased is a symbol of dedication to the Bravo! Vail mission of enriching lives through music.
2. Donate to Bravo! Vail’s education and engagement programs. The nonprofit aims to foster music education and promote a lifelong appreciation for the arts.
3. Bid on exclusive packages and experiences. The Virtual Giving Gala includes an online auction with exclusive packages and experiences available.
