The Anaheim Performing Arts Center Foundation (“APACF”), a 501(c)(3) tax exempt organization, was formed to establish and maintain a state-of-the-art building with exceptional performance and educational facilities which will allow Anaheim to become an entertainment destination for Broadway stage and musical theater performances as well as the home for local performing arts groups.
It has been shown over and over again that the performing arts contribute significantly to the economics, culture and welfare of a community. They inspire, engage, delight and challenge us. The APAC Foundation will bring the magic of the stage to the community of North Orange County and surrounding cities by providing access to the performing arts at affordable prices.
In our attempt to reach out to the community, the Guild of APACF is sponsoring a fundraising festival (“Family Fest at Fox Pointe”) on September 17, 2016, for a day filled with family fun, games and prizes galore. It is a day honoring our Anaheim Police and Anaheim Fire and Rescue Departments. These wonderful men and women are not recognized nearly enough for their tireless efforts and acts of bravery.
We recognize that you receive numerous requests for donations and we truly appreciate your consideration and support of our mission. Our goal is to raise $5,000.00 and your contribution will help to underwrite the expenses of our festival.
With much appreciation,
Chairperson and Secretary

At our upcoming Great Gatsby event you can enter to win…
With great excitement, I enthusiastically accepted the position of Executive Director of the Anaheim Performing Arts Center Foundation this year. Under the passionate leadership of our Board president, Linda Knohl, the foundation is entering its sixth year pursuing its mission to build a new performing arts center in the city of Anaheim. The Performing Arts enrich our communities and provide much needed education outreach to our youth.
APACF have produced many events in the community to build awareness of our mission and improve the quality of life in our community. Our goal is to raise funds to build a new home for the Anaheim Ballet, Orange County Symphony and produce top notch Musical Theatre and plays.
It’s easy to see why I am so excited to be a part of such a wonderful organization. This ambitious grass-roots effort would not be possible without the support we receive from each of you; our volunteers, donors and single ticket buyers. I look forward to meeting all of you at our many fundraising events throughout the year.
Whether you were there with us from the beginning — and we know who you are! — or you’ve just learned about APACF, we welcome you. We’re just getting started!
I invite you to join us in our quest— to donate, volunteer, join, and learn about APACF. Every contribution keeps our foundation moving closer to our goal.
I also encourage you to become a “Fan” of the Anaheim Performing Arts Center on Facebook. It’s a great way to keep in touch and to see photos of our “Broadway Rocks Anaheim” concerts or our major fundraiser, “The Great Gatsby Weekend’. Show your commitment to the arts by keeping them alive in our community.
The Anaheim Arts Council has announced the start of the 2013 Champion for the Arts Contest, and APACF Board President Linda Knohl has been nominated!
Nominee Linda Knohl has dedicated a large portion of her life to the fostering and promotion of arts in Anaheim and surrounding communities. A native of New York, Linda was instilled at a young age with a desire to immerse herself in theatre, dance, music and to nurture artists and other like-minded individuals who believe, as she does, that the arts are an essential component in any healthy society. In her decades of dedication, she has served numerous organizations including the Anaheim Ballet, Orange County Symphony, the Anaheim Muzeo, Long Beach’s esteemed Broadway musical theatre company; Musical Theatre West and dozens more, to ensure that artists have a place to create and audiences have a place to discover and explore the transformative powers of the arts. Never taking a bow for her efforts, Linda prefers to work behind the scenes and allow the spotlight to fall on the artists instead. But as any artist knows, without a benefactor, without a visionary whose dedication is undeterred and indefatigable, without a true champion in the ring, their work is only half done. Art is not created in a vacuum and without the sincere devotion of leaders like Linda Knohl; the landscape of performing arts in the community and its accessibility to audiences of all ages would be greatly diminished. For this reason, and for so many more, Linda Knohl, President and Co-Founder of the Anaheim Performing Arts Center Foundation is a true “Champion of the Arts”.
The Anaheim Arts Council is sponsoring a contest for Champion of the Arts. Voting tickets are $1. For every ticket sold, the APAC Foundation receives half of the proceeds and you are entered into a drawing to win a prize. We would appreciate your support of this fundraiser and helping Linda become the 2013 Champion of the Arts! Deadline to purchase tickets is March 15th. Please email Shelley Sherman at email@example.com for more information and to purchase tickets.
