We hope that by now you have heard that Sonoma Community Center is going to honor our community leaders and 2020 MUSES, Sam and Carol Morphy, on August 8th at 5:00PM in a FREE online variety telethon show. We are calling it the aMUSEathon, The Big Night In.
We have lined up some terrific talent and two local celebrity hosts, Eric Jackson and Ellen Toscano. The Center's staff and board have been overflowing with creativity to craft this one-of-a-kind event. We invite you to tune in along with your family and friends of all ages to enjoy the show! It will be broadcast on several online platforms including YouTube and Facebook, and we will provide a virtual “TV GUIDE” of our program.
Now more than ever we need your support to keep the Community Center alive and thriving through these uncertain times. We hope that you will consider helping us bring community back to the Community Center. Because of you, we are able to continue to offer our programs and services to the Sonoma Valley community. Let me tell you, we are very busy developing new ways to make that happen!
Sharing Success by Giving Back
Sonoma residents for nearly 30 years, Sam and Carol’s connection with the Sonoma Community Center dates back to founding Presentation School at the Center in the late ‘90s. As a passionate Rotarian, Sam was also involved in the renovation of Andrews Hall into a modern theatre and the Rotary Community Kitchen. In addition, Sam and Carol, owners of the “Red Grape” abandoned their vacation, flew home, and baked hundreds of free pizzas for first responders during the 2017 firestorms. The Center’s Muse celebration is our signature annual fundraiser to honor those who have inspired community and imparted a lasting impression on the Sonoma Valley.
The funding you provide supports our classes and programs by providing art supplies and scholarships so that children in Sonoma have everything they need to participate in art, music, summer camps (and more!) inspiring them help to develop their creative talents. Your support also underwrites our community and emergency services. In recent months, Sonoma Community Center has provided over 2000 masks to health professionals and community members.
The Sonoma Community Center is a
member-supported, not-for-profit organization since 1953, and is housed
on the campus of the historic Sonoma Grammar School.
For over six decades, the Center has worked to inspire creative
expression and enhance quality of life by bringing world class
programming to the Valley of the Moon, and to preserve and restore our
grand, historic building. The Center’s campus was built in 1916 and
resides just two blocks east of the historic Sonoma plaza.
