CLARA is deeply grateful to the hundreds of generous donors who have helped our organization grow strong over the past six years. Here are a few ways we’re looking forward to celebrating you on Big Day of Giving (Thurs, May 5) this year. (psst…you can make your donation anytime between now and 11:59pm on 5/5, here)

First off — free prizes:

CLARA tenants have generously offered prizes representing their organizations to incentivize giving throughout the day. Once you’ve donated, your name is entered into every raffle — so give early to maximize your chances of winning!

All raffle drawings take place on Thursday, May 5, 2022.

12:01am: $25 gift card to Seasons Coffee Roasters

8am: a free Samba class at the Brazilian Center for Cultural Exchange!

11am: a free one-year membership at the Alliance Francaise!

3pm: a free month of classes from the McKeever School of Irish Dance.

6:30pm: a free pair of tickets to Capital Stage‘s current show (through June 5), Lifespan of a Fact!

9:30pm: a $25 gift certificate to Southside Unlimited‘s online art studio!

12:05am, May 6: Finish Strong at Big Day of Giving — just like Sacramento Ballet’s incredible dancers. All donors to CLARA’s Big Day of Giving campaign will be entered to win a pair of tickets to Beer and Ballet — opening on May 6 and running through 5/21.


And let’s not forget the events…
These events are open to supporters of our Big Day of Giving campaign

Building Tours: If you’re a supporter of CLARA who has never been inside the brick building at 24th and N, now’s your chance to change that! We’re offering a public tour of the building on Tuesday, May 10 at 5:30pm. You can RSVP here.

May 14, 3-5pm: Patrons at Play
Have you ever wondered what happens at a CLARA in-school residency? Find out during an interactive afternoon of play led by CLARA teaching artist Bianca Patterson, education director Emili Danz, and executive director Megan Wygant. Space is limited for this unique event, so while it is free, registration is only open to supporters who give at the $50 level or above during Big Day of Giving
