As much as we look forward to spending time with you at our annual SummerFest celebration and gala, current government restrictions prohibit us from gathering in large groups. This year calls for a new approach. As such, we are taking this moment to honor, recognize and thank SAC’s most cherished and loyal friends by introducing our 2020 Patrons Circle. In lieu of supporting our annual Summerfest Gala, we invite past SummerFest supporter and longtime friends of SAC to join our new 2020 Patrons Circle. Your contribution will allow us to continue SAC’s year-round programming and serve as a critical economic driver that will lead this community out of these unsure times.
