“Scholarships Get a Big Boost!”

Thanks to the successful Community Day at New Leaf Markets in Felton and Boulder Creek (May 31), the Youth Scholarship Fund at the Santa Cruz Mountains Art Center is fatten up by $1,930! Thank you all who shopped at New Leaf’s great community markets…we can start off our Summer Art Camp program with plenty of funding for scholarships through the season.

This is truly the “gift that keeps on giving”: scholarships are given out to young budding artists in our community whose families are in crisis or need. The value of arts education and experience in helping build a “whole” child is invaluable and we are extremely thankful to New Leaf Markets for their continued vital support to worthy organizations in our community.
