The Colton Darr Memorial Arts Fund Telethon

In May of 2020, Regional Performing Arts lost Colton Darr, one of our talented young actors. Colton had a condition called Long QT Syndrome that caused him to suffer a sudden cardiac arrest. After this loss, Regional wanted to take action to both honor Colt’s memory and continue his legacy by finding a way for students to participate in the performing arts who might not have the financial means to do so. Through a partnership with the Porter County Community Foundation, the Colton Darr Memorial Arts Fund was born. The goal of this fund is to raise an untouched principal of at least $10,000, which will result in roughly $500 of awardable monies each year to help students afford performing arts experiences wherever they may go.
Join us LIVE on YouTube for the first ever Colton Darr Memorial Arts Fund Telethon! The evening will be filled with a variety of musical acts in a loving tribute to Colt’s memory.
If you would like to contribute to Colt’s Memorial fund, text “COLT” to 44-321 or visit https://regionalperformingarts.org/the-colton-darr…/ for more information
