Homeschool Arts in the Park will be funded by a silent auction held the day of the event to reimburse the committee for funds already spent and for next year. The money goes towards rental of the grounds at Lake View Park, rental of the amphitheater and electricity, sound equipment, and materials used. Committee asks for donations of goods or services from local community businesses to support our event. We are not hosting the event for profit. Due to the cost of filing non-profit status, we have not filed, we may do so in the future depending on the success of the event. The event is free for attendees and performers.
