From musical performances to fundraising walks, various not-for-profit organizations around town addressed the Advisory Cultural Commission for Special Events and Cultural Amenities (SECA) funding.
Of the 91 applicants, 34 showed up and provided an overview of how funding will benefit their organization.
Sarah Orleans, President and CEO of DuPage Children’s Museum.
Paula Ball, Executive Director of Naperville Men’s Glee Club.
Walter Johnson, President and CEO of Turning Pointe Autism Foundation.
