Through ticket sales and donations, the organization can fulfill its mission of investing in the region’s creative vibrancy by providing artists and organizations with a map for success.. A single donated dollar raised at Prelude to the Season can be leveraged into as much as three dollars in support to Sacramento’s artists, arts groups and non-profits.
