Review for The HARC Foundation, Marina del Rey, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Leadership at The Harc Foundation is totally committed to helping discover, nurture and promote emrging creative artists across all creative fields such as painting, sculpture, dance, drama, music composition and video/mult- media disciplines. After 20 years as Board Chairman, I am proud of the Emerging Artists we have honored as well as the CAT Award winners for whom we have provided scholarships to help them continue their graduate work in Creative Arts Therapy for abused and neglected children.

For 20 years, The Harc Foundation has applied 100% of all donations and funds to the HARC and CAT Awards and the events promoting these wionners. At no time does the Foundation use any funds for administrative purposes.

I have been proud to be a part of HARC's first 20 years and hope there are others out there who care enough about the art scene in America to become involved as a "patrion", donor or volunteer for the next 20 years.

Best wishes,

David N. Marchese
Chairman & CEO

I am doing just that: to resign my position so young, new blood can join the Board and make their contributions to their community and society at large.

Role:  Board Member & As Chairman, I did many things from helping to raise funds to preparing special fund-raising dinners and catering to helping produce all event invitations and programs over the past 20 years.
