Prime Time for a Gift (Amazon Prime Time...)

There are still a few hours left for Amazon Prime Day 2019 and it syncs up well with Atumpan's upcoming Christmas in July Benefit Social.

What is the Christmas in July Benefit Social?

I'm glad you asked. This event is a day of giving. Atumpan gives its guests cajun cuisine by Chef Mike Hall, former owner of the Bienville Grille restaurants. Guests will also be given signature multi-media edutainment by the Dynamic Duo and Atumpan Dance Theatre. VIP guests give their time and invest in the success of Atumpan's annual Harambe for the Holidays Kwanzaa Show.

Why Christmas in July? Christmas in July events occur from the middle to the end of the month. The Harambe for the Holidays Kwanzaa Show provides educational outreach (workshops, K-12 school presentations, travel to museums) during the December Christmas season, but funding is necessary year round. Like other non-profits, Atumpan starts its fiscal year in July. The start of a fiscal year makes July a great time for partners to offer sponsorships and donations. Atumpan uses year-round, project-based learning to produce a Kwanzaa celebration similar to other metropolitan areas like Richmond, Washington DC, and Baltimore. This Christmas in July Benefit Social provides an opportunity for guests to invest now for the ongoing educational outreach leading up to the Harambe for the Holidays Kwanzaa Show.

Who Else is Partnering with Atumpan?

Current partners include Tryon Palace, Virginia Stage Company and the Kroc Center. Here is a short video of Marleen Mallory Kroc Center.

In any case, Atumpan is full of gratitude for the opportunity to bring arts and education to the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond. It is all thanks to the investment of the Friends of Atumpan community.

Prime Gratitude Example:

Atumpan founders aim to show the world how to express gratitude. During the final presentation of the WorldStrides season, this group of adults and teens from California get a happy dance tutorial (don't try this at home).
