About the Annual Encore Luncheon

Each year, HSPVA Friends’ Encore Luncheon raises vital funds for art area supplies, state-of-the-art technology, specialized teachers, and other essential building blocks required by Kinder HSPVA’s rigorous arts curriculum. The proceeds from the luncheon go directly to these needs, supporting the dedicated young artists who work every day to excel in their crafts. Traditionally, the Encore Luncheon features one of Kinder HSPVA’s Distinguished Alumni. A list of our past honorees can be found below.
