NECCA appreciates support for Circus Spectacular

On March 2 and 3, we filled the Latchis Theatre for an event that raised just over $26,000 for NECCA’s local outreach programming and scholarships. This money will help continue free workshops at area housing developments, winter sports programming for schools, and scholarships for students for whom the fitness and creativity that circus offers can be life changing.

We acknowledge our sponsors, raffle-ticket buyers, supporting businesses, and the many volunteers who gave of their time and services.

Finally, this program would not have been possible without the jaw-dropping contributions of the performers themselves who came from England, Canada, and around the United States to donate their considerable talent and time.

And hold the date for 2019, the first weekend in March, when we will be bringing the 10th annual Circus Spectacular annual fundraising extravaganza to the Latchis Stage.
