LaFontaine Arts Council announces arts speaker

Posted: Friday, October 13, 2017

The LaFontaine Arts Council’s fall fundraiser, “Fashions for the Arts,” will be held on Saturday, November 4 at the Historic Forks of the Wabash. A social hour will begin at 11 a.m. The event also features a luncheon, silent auction and a fashion show with local models wearing clothes from The North End Boutique in Roanoke.

In addition, an annual Arts Advocate is chosen to speak about the importance of the arts, especially as they relate to children. Lisa Loza is this year’s Arts Advocate.

Loza is a vocalist who began performing solos in church at the age of four, continued as a member of the church choir in her teens and carried her love of music to high school as part of an award-winning show choir. In her young adult years, Loza was the lead singer with several local music groups and continued to develop her skills. This led her to sing and travel with the Fort Wayne-based group Urban Legend. Today Loza is still singing and teaching voice lessons to several students, including her daughter Hadlee.

Tickets for “Fashions for the Arts” are available from any LAC board member or can be reserved by calling LAC executive director Debbie Dyer at either (260) 358-0055 or (260) 356-8874.

All proceeds from this event go toward the LaFontaine Arts Council’s “Arts in Education” programming, which brings quality arts-related experiences to all students in Huntington County. More information about the LAC can be found at www.lafontaineartscouncil.org or on the LAC Facebook page.
