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 HSPVA’s rigorous arts curriculum. The proceeds from the luncheon go directly to these needs and the talented, dedicated young artists who work every day to excel in their crafts.
