Make a Donation, Make a Difference

On behalf of the Tarpon Springs High School Leadership Conservatory for the Arts, we would like to request your support for the Conservatory’s 21st annual Gala and Auction. The Gala is an exciting event to raise money for our nationally recognized program that provides an integrated, seamless curriculum in academics, instrumental music, technology, and leadership skills. The Celebration of Excellence, an Evening Under the Stars Gala & Auction will take place on April 10th, 2021, at 6:00 P.M. at the Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Florida.

The Tarpon Springs Leadership Conservatory for the Arts is synonymous with excellence inside and outside of the classroom and is built upon a foundation of community support. The program uses world-class education in music, dance, performance, and leadership to inspire students to become outstanding citizens and leaders of tomorrow and it can only continue with your help. Our directors are committed to providing life-changing opportunities to our students that will help them in all aspects of their lives, far beyond their four years in high school. Our program receives minimal assistance from our local school district. Your annual sponsorship will ensure the future of this outstanding program and its influence on the lives of our students.
