Seeing Stars! Benefit

Seeing Stars! Benefit is the Flint School of Performing Arts’ signature fundraising event.

For the past 25 years, this event has been vital in raising funds for the Flint School of Performing Arts tuition assistance program, ensuring that students can study music, dance, and theater regardless of their ability to pay. Last year alone, the Seeing Stars tuition assistance program awarded $230,000 to local FSPA performing arts students and their families. 60% of our enrolled families receive support.
