2019 Colorado Gives Day Results for Ascend Performing Arts

On behalf of all our Ensembles, members, alumni, volunteers and the staff of Ascend Performing Arts:


Thanks to your generous donations, we raised over $26,000.00 for our programs on #Giving Tuesday and Colorado Gives Day!  Although we did not meet our $35,000 goal for this fundraiser, you helped meet the goals for the Keith Nygaard Memorial Scholarship, The Alumni Scholarships, Scott’s $2,500 Challenge, and the Ascend Board of Director’s $2,500 Challenge!

Kirsten H – 2019 Blue Knights Age Out

For over 60 years our organization has been blessed and sustained by a community of supporters who believe in the values taught, and the transformational life experience gained by the young people who participate in our programs.  Programs that will make them more focused upon success through a powerful work ethic, collaboration and an unwavering dedication to excellence. Simply stated, lessons that will make them better people, and as a result, make the world a better place.

I have been honored to be the Director of the Blue Knights/Ascend Performing Arts for over 30 years and have always been amazed and humbled by just how powerful, and deep belief in our cause truly is.  Accomplishing this is not possible without you.

On behalf of all of us at Ascend Performing Arts and the young people we serve, THANK YOU!

Mark Arnold
Chief Executive Officer
