minds, strong bodies, active learners and vibrant communities. We envision that
school-aged youth will participate in an educational curriculum that promotes creative
learning through cultural diversity and intellectual excellence.

Prime Shine Driving the Arts Transportation Fund
The Gallo Center for the Arts has received funding from Prime Shine Car Wash to
help offset the cost of transporting students by bus to see arts education
performances. The funding can be used for transportation to Gallo
Center-produced events only. Student performances presented by California
Theatre Center, the Gallo Center’s resident companies, or independent producers
are excluded. Schools must purchase a minimum of fifty (50) tickets at the Costa
Family Fund discounted rate of $5 per student to qualify. Grants will not exceed
$200 per round trip, and there is a limit of one grant per class grade per
school. A representative will contact you after your request has been reviewed.
