Infinity has always been grateful to have the support of area musicians as they grow and develop programming to support the next generation of artists in Chautauqua County. Thanks to this local tribe of supporters, Infinity has been able to accomplish so many amazing learning experiences with the young people who choose to spend their extra time at the Infinity Center.
Area musician, Mark Mincarelli, has gone above and beyond the call of support, and has chosen to donate all tips and funds raised from his performances to Infinity! To date, Mark has raised more than $1,000 for Infinity!
Mincarelli says, “It’s a way to help out — by doing something I love. Donating to Infinity is not only a worthy cause, but liberates me from the idea of performing for money — now I’m playing for fun!”
Mark approached Infinity with his idea and immediately set to work, collaborating with area businesses and venues to establish a relationship and explain his idea to support the music and arts programming at Infinity.
Executive Director, Shane Hawkins, says, “Like most nonprofits, we have to hold a lot of fundraisers at Infinity in order to support our youth programming. Mark’s idea is hands-down the most brilliantly creative idea we’ve ever had anyone come forward with. It benefits Infinity in a huge way, markets the businesses that he performs at, and he loves performing. It is just so positive from every angle.”
In addition to regular paying gigs, Mark has been hitting the streets with a battery operated PA system.
