MFMC Music Notes
Instead of Arkansas Gives, we now have Northwest Arkansas (NWA) Gives on April 5th. Opera in the Ozarks would greatly appreciate your support!
Please note the details below about the upcoming Centennial Convention! It's important to have a delegate from every local club. We hope to see you there!
Northwest Arkansas (NWA) Gives on April 5th
This is how NWA Gives will work - Each participating organization is listed alphabetically. The NWA Gives website then has a link back to each individual organization's website. There will not be a central processor this year so you will go to their website which will link you to our website. You will then give directly to OIO (If you would like to see more about NWA Gives, just go to their website http://www.nwagives.org/)
Just visit the http://www.nwagives.org/ website, choose “Participating Non-Profits”, scroll down to Opera in the Ozarks and use your credit card to donate to OIO.
Won't you please help us raise $7,000 and help OIO win an additional $400 bonus too? You can be the difference!
