Thank You for Participating in the Flying Ivories Event!

The dueling piano sensation, The Flying Ivories, were BACK by Popular Demand on Thursday, April 29 at 6:30 p.m. to help raise some much-needed funds for the arts.  This special virtual performance was supported by dueling sponsors, Ion Bank and Drew International. The event also showcased the culmination of an online fundraising auction, sponsored by Post University, featuring art, performance and products of ACC members and supporting businesses.

THANK YOU to everyone who purchased tickets, submitted song requests and donations, participated in the auction and supported us at all levels!
