5% Day Supports Fort Worth Opera
Tuesday, August 26th
8:00 AM - 10:00 PM
The Arlington Store Only

Arlington is happy to announce Fort Worth Opera is the recipient of our next 5% Community Giving Day. We will donate 5% of the store's net sales to Fort Worth Opera, so save the date and come shop for the arts.

In 1946, Mrs. E L. (Eloise) Snyder and Mrs. August (Betty) Spain, both former opera singers, and Mrs. Jeanne Axtell Walker decided it was time for Fort Worth to launch an opera company of its own. These ladies pulled off what many thought to be an impossible feat, bringing together all of the necessary elements for a first-class opera production in just seven months.

From these inspired beginnings, Fort Worth Opera has continued to provide countless memorable performances, and remains one of the 14 oldest opera companies in the entire nation as well as the oldest continuously performing opera company in Texas.

Fort Worth Opera also boasts a highly successful opera education program. The Children's Opera Tour brings the exciting and colorful world of opera to nearly 40,000 school children each year across the state of Texas. The tour provides the first experience with classical music and drama for many elementary and middle school students. 

Fort Worth Opera constantly strives to be good stewards of each donation received - it is an integral part of their daily effort to fulfill the mission: To educate, entertain, and expand the horizons of current and future audiences and artists through variety and artistic integrity.
