The Vanguard Alumni Association is pleased to announce the start of a major fundraising campaign to raise scholarship funds in support of all the performing ensembles of Vanguard Music and Performing Arts! The grand prize is a beautiful, limited-edition bronze sculpture created by 1984 SCV Alumni Danielle (Perkins) Ewanchuk.
Cast in bronze with multiple patinas and seated on a base of rich African Padauk, this sculpture is approximately 18” x 18” x 10” in size and depicts a graceful color guard member performing in the 2017 SCV Alumni Corps. The shield at the base is “ lifting” her up away from the foundation as a stepping stone to a higher level of excellence, just as Vanguard has done for so many members throughout history. Et Gaudium in gratia, Credemus! is engraved in the base which translates from Latin to “With grace and joy, we believe!”
Ticket packages must be purchased at the same time to receive a volume discount, and only one name will appear on each ticket. The winning ticket will be pulled at random at the Vanguard End-of-Season Banquet, held on August 11, 2019 at the JW Marriott in Downtown Indianapolis.
