The Naperville Jaycees will donate proceeds from the entertainment stage tip jars at Last Fling to Artful IMPACT. Read the full release below:
The Naperville Jaycees' voted unanimously on August 13, 2013 to donate all tips generated at the Entertainment Beer Tent and Stage on Sunday, September 1, to Artful IMPACT! in honor of Matthew Suhar.
Matthew was an area native who passed away earlier this year as a result of a tragic accident. Matt attended the Fling as a musician, band manager, booking agent and fan over many years. Friends and family have coordinated a group of bands that will be playing in his honor to help raise funds for Artful IMPACT!, a worthy arts focused local organization.
The funds given in Matt’s name will be used to offset costs in creating music, dance, and theater training programs. A portion of the funds will also be put into a scholarship fund to provide arts training to a music student whose family could not normally afford the tuition costs required to receive such training.
