Grant A Performing Arts Wish

Francisco “Kiko” Chicas Aleman receiving his Yamaha Custom Z Alto Saxophone

The Foundation for the Performing Arts Center is looking to fulfill the “Performing Arts Wish” of a well-deserving local student or young person.

Last year, the Foundation awarded Francisco “Kiko” Chicas Aleman his very own Yamaha Custom Z Alto Saxophone. We were thrilled to match GoFundMe proceeds and get Kiko, a lifelong musician and graduate of Santa Maria High, his first saxophone.

This year we are looking once again to fulfill a wish of a young performing artist from the Central Coast area.

Do you know a deserving dancer, musician, singer, or actor who needs help fulfilling a performing arts wish?

Submit a 1-page letter nominating a young person explaining who they are, where they come from in SLO or Santa Barbara County, what we can do to help them and why they deserve the award.

All nominations must be submitted by Sept. 11, 2018. Email letters to

Thank you!
