IN MEMORIAM – Dixie Rogus

Our beloved member, Dixie Rogus, passed away from cancer last year. Before her passing, Dixie named BCAC as one of the recipients to which she’d like memorial donations in her honor to be directed. Thanks to her thoughtful wishes and the generosity of the many people who cared about her, $400 was given to BCAC to further our mission.

Our members voted to use these funds toward supporting young artists. This year BCAC will provide two separate awards of $100 each to deserving young artists, repeating the awards the following year. It is the members’ intent to work toward raising funds annually to support art for youth in Dixie’s honor.
