Many local arts supporters remember Sid Berg as the founder of our organization. He built a legacy that continues to thrive and grow in the Hampton Roads Community. Make a memorial donation to support the work he began in 1985.
The Hampton Roads arts community lost a champion when Marty Einhorn passed in 2021. A successful businessman and former President of our Board, he will forever be known as a just, honest and confident leader. Our student Mentor Program is rightfully named in his memory.
We remember Marty Brown fondly as the Business Manager and bookkeeper for Tidewater Winds. Her absence has been felt by so many among us. Please remember her by making a donation to the Marty Brown Memorial Fund to continue the support she provided to our Tidewater Winds community. paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/1771421
