This cocktail attire event will feature performances by local youth artists throughout North Carolina, refreshments and prizes featuring items from local small businesses. The event, which is 7 to 9:30 p.m., is a fundraiser for artistic scholarships for children seeking arts education.
Kids with Hearts for the Arts was established by Huck Borden and Annika Benander in 2020 to showcase youth artistic talent and promote scholarship opportunities for kids in the arts. Since starting their organization, Borden and Benander have raised more than $10,000 in youth scholarships and have provided multiple performance events for children throughout the state.
Borden and Benander are working to fully fund their endowment fund, which will continue to provide youth artistic scholarships in perpetuity for children in Cumberland County through educational opportunities in North Carolina.
