Allied Arts kicked off its annual fundraising campaign on Tuesday with a goal to raise more than $3.1 million for the arts in central Oklahoma.
Campaign co-chairmen are Judy Hatfield of Equity Commercial Realty and John Richels of Devon Energy Corp.
About 325 volunteers, board members and representatives from Allied Arts member agencies were expected to attend Tuesday's event at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum.
The event also featured performances by students from some of Allied Arts' member agencies.
Last year's campaign raised $3,095,027 for Allied Art member agencies, which include 20 in central Oklahoma.
The organization also supports additional arts organizations for programming, exhibits, performances and community arts experiences.
People who donate $50 or more can receive the OKCityCard, an entertainment discount card offering savings at metro area retail stores, restaurants and arts events.
