Relevé Performing Arts Center in Hendersonville, NC’s fantastic results at the recent Panama City Kids Artistic Review Competition were dampened by the devastating theft of one of the Center’s prop trailers! Jamie Osteen and Beth Bradley (co-owners) have been in business for only 4 years and are trying to absorb the totality of their losses so they can begin to recover.

The loss includes props for routines for the remainder of the season, scaffolding and dollies – and the trailer itself – which was actually borrowed. Jamie and Beth quickly put together a fundraiser to coincide with tomorrow’s National Dance Day that other area studios are helping to promote. The community is also responding in amazing ways. You may also like to respond through words of encouragement or donations.
