The Flagler Youth Orchestra‘s five ensembles are all in concert at the Flagler Auditorium at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 for those 18 and older. Younger people pay $3. $1 of each adult ticket goes toward the auditorium’s Arts in Education fund. Keep in mind, the Youth Orchestra has not increased the ticket prices. Rather, the Auditorium now charges a steep “ticketing fee” that has resulted in the higher prices. That fee does not benefit the orchestra. Buy tickets online easily here.

The Online auction to benefit the G.W. Carver Center in Bunnell is now open. Art Work, Local Experiences, Restaurant Gift Cards, Baskets, FCYC Summer Camp Registration & Trip Specials, Window Cleaning, Kayaking Tour, Furniture, World Wide Time Share, Camping Rentals, and the list goes on and on. The purpose of the auction is to raise money to go back into the development of the Carver Center. The Flagler County School Board and Flagler County Government have both owned and managed the facility over the years. Due to budgetary constraints it appeared it would be necessary to close the facility in 2010. A coalition was born to save the Gym and restore it as a community center. Our foundation was created to serve this facility with grant funding and equipment/supply needs. In order to participate in this auction you must register for a bidder account here. On the last day of the auction if a bidder submits a bid in the last 3 minutes before auction closes that item will extend for another 3 minutes and that process will repeat for up to a half hour the official close. Go bid here. If you have any questions please contact us via email at [email protected]
