The Holualoa Foundation for Arts and Culture announces the first annual Emerging Artists Scholarship fund raising event 6-9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19 at the Donkey Mill Art Center.

Based on a Coney Island carnival-esque theme, this event will include live music by Andrea Lindborg’s Pele’s Passion & Bump City, bar-b-que, refreshments, photo booth and games. Costumes addressing characters from the historical Coney Island amusement park like Lady Zombie, mermaids, contortionists and other side show characters are optional.

Tickets are $15 and available at the door.

This year, HFAC honors Devyn Park for her outstanding commitment to the arts and the daily successes of the Donkey Mill Art Center.

Park, who has studied art since age eight, volunteers 20 hours a week at the Mill by teaching youth programs, office management and special event planning.

Park has been accepted in to the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design to continue her studies in art and rigorous academics.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will be dedicated to her college tuition.

The Snell Endowment, dedicated to supporting talented emerging artists, announces a $1,000 matching grant in support of Park’s academic work. Consider donating to the Snell Endowment in order to strengthen the capability of young artists from our community to fully realize their creative talents.

The Holualoa Foundation for Arts and Culture awards an additional $2,500 scholarship to Park.

The mission of the Holualoa Foundation for Arts and Culture, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, is to enrich the lives of persons of all ages and abilities through art education.

The foundation operates the Donkey Mill Art Center, a gathering place for all to explore, expand and develop their artistic selves in a supportive community.
