Up with People
Sept. 11 & 12
Up With People travels the world to share their love for music and passion for service. The Journey, the newest touring production is designed to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Up with People, while acknowledging that our mission is an ongoing journey, and is as relevant in 2015 as it was in 1965. Tickets are $10 and proceeds benefit the Venice High School Foundation. Visit upwithpeople.org/cities/2015B/venice/Venice for more information.
SCOPE Annual Celebration and Boundary Crosser Award
Join us as we celebrate our 2015 Boundary Crosser award winner! A Boundary Crosser is a person who connects people across boundary lines that traditionally divide community. They are citizen leaders who extend past their familiar territory, whether that’s government, non-profits, business, ethnic groups, religion, or neighborhoods to become community builders. Be a part of the celebration as we honor Carolyn Johnson at Michael’s on East. Learn more at scopexcel.org.
