UK Arts Administration Serves Up a Coffee and Donuts Fundraiser

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 20, 2015)  Tired of your everyday morning coffee routine? Start your day in a charitable way by participating in a coffee swap 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, April 21, in the Fine Arts Building.

UK Arts Administration Program students are asking people to "swap out" their morning coffee routine by giving what they would normally spend on a cup of coffee as a donation to the program. The suggested donation price is $5-$10. In return, participants will receive a cup of coffee and doughnuts.

This event is being hosted by students taking a "Fundraising for the Arts" class this semester. The students secured donations of coffee and donuts from local businesses in Lexington. The proceeds will go into a discretionary fund in the UK Arts Administration Program, which will support future students and faculty activities such as field trips and conferences.

The coffee swap will take place in the Fine Arts Building, right outside of the Guignol Theatre.

UK's Arts Administration Program, in the UK College of Fine Arts, is designed to prepare students for a future in the management of arts organizations. Students are provided with a strong liberal arts education, an understanding of the business world, and a comprehensive education in one of the four arts disciplines of art, music, dance and theatre.
