The Art League Wins $2,500!
Thank YOU!

What an amazing weekend! Thanks to your help and generosity, we came in Second Place in the Spring2ACTion campaign and won a $2,500 grant!

We are overwhelmed and honored by the outpouring of generosity from our Art League community, and have now raised $8,500 since last Thursday for our programs and search for a permanent home for our school in the City of Alexandria!

You had the power to make this happen and you did! Thank you!!
