ACA_James Earl Jones Mentor Sculpture_Web Graphic 420x315-01_edited.jpg

 With this project we ask you to help us honor not one, but two of our own!

This is a fundraising event for the ACA's sculpture project honoring mentorships.

The  Ramsdell Regional Center for the Arts is generously collaborating with us.


We are hoping for individual support, corporate interest, and grants to create this sculpture that will honor how Mentoring by Mr. Crouch allowed JEJ to find his famous Voice.


Thank you for your support!
