Each year, ArtsKC hosts an inspirational breakfast to raise funds to support the agency’s operating budget. This event is regarded as the “feel-good” event of the year, with a goal of 800 guests in attendance. Prominent business people, community volunteers, philanthropists, and art enthusiasts gather for this FREE annual fundraising breakfast, celebrating artists, arts organizations, and the growing and thriving arts community in the Kansas City region. This year’s event theme is Ignite!
As an Inspiration Grant recipient, ArtsKC interviewed and featured Cheryl Eve Acosta in their video. The grant helped fund an eight-week certificate course at the Gemology Institute of America GIA in New York City to learn the use of CAD/CAM software for jewelry designers.
