TCAN’s Annual Benefit has traditionally been a celebration of the positive impact that the arts have on our community. Proceeds from the benefit support TCAN's artistic programming as well as its community outreach initiatives.

This year, as we celebrate our 24th year as a community-based arts organization, TCAN Virtual Benefit 2021 will feature that performance by one of the great musicians of our generation: Australian guitarist Tommy Emmanuel.

During this national health crisis, support for TCAN has never been more crucial. Your support will make it possible to continue our mission of presenting arts experiences that are available to everyone.
