Who We Are
The Seagle Festival Guild is a volunteer organization formed in 1996 to support the Seagle Festival mission by providing a welcoming atmosphere for the emerging artists and audience members who attend Seagle Festival performances. Proceeds from sales by the Guild go to the Seagle Festival Guild Scholarship Fund. Our activities in support of these goals include:
- Hosting emerging artists and providing a supportive “home away from home” for the summer season.
- Holding a fundraising luncheon each summer season.
- Selling refreshments at all Seagle Festival performances.
- Organizing a winter and summer raffle.
- Serving as ushers, program distributors, and raffle sellers at all Seagle Festival performances.
The Mission of the Seagle Festival Guild is to increase awareness and community support for the exceptional training program for singers at Seagle Festival; create a welcoming atmosphere at each performance by greeting patrons, ushering, and providing refreshments; support the Seagle Festival Guild Scholarship Fund with profits raised; and create a supportive atmosphere for the artists.
