Sustainer $250 - $499
Guarantor $500 - $999
Benefactor $1,000 - $1,499

Sustaining Fund Contributors  

for 2016-2017

We wish to take this opportunity to thank the following Sustainers for their generous support.  These and past contributions have enabled the Concert Association of Valparaiso to provide the very best in quality entertainment to our Porter County citizens at very affordable prices.  We have also been able to use a part of this fund for music scholarships for our talented youth and to provide opportunities for our high school music groups to attend workshops with renown, experienced musicians.  The ticket prices alone could never accomplish this -- without our sustaining fund there would be no association of community concerts in Valparaiso.

Once, again, Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.  The community thanks you, our senior citizens thank you, and, most of all, our aspiring youth thank you.  We are so proud and grateful to have your support!
