Devin Spears Talent Showcase and Basket Raffle, Feb. 23rd 2019
The Endicott Performing Arts Center presents a talent showcase every year. All the proceeds from the showcase benefit the "Devin Spears Memorial Scholarship Fund". The fund awards scholarships to local graduating high school seniors pursuing higher education in the arts.
The EPAC Devin Spears Memorial Scholarship was established to honor the memory of Devin Spears, a member of the EPAC Kids Theater Workshop who starred as Dorothy in the workshop's 2001 production of "The Wiz." Devin and her mother Valerie were tragically killed in 2002.
Many thanks to all who assisted in this year's fundraising event! Since its inception, the EPAC Devin Spears Scholarship Fund has awarded over $45,000 in scholarships to graduating high school seniors.
"It's very gratifying to be able to help the young people of our community pursue their dreams," says EPAC Director Patrick Foti. "It's just another way that illustrates how community theater helps make our community a better place to live. Our heartiest congratulations go out to the recipients."
The showcase features song, dance and instrumental performances by many of the area's most talented performers. Groups from EPAC's Kids Theater Workshop and area High schools, as well as local dance groups, and many other local talents will be performing.
There is also a basket raffle during the show with many different themed gift baskets up for raffle, to benefit the scholarship fund.
