HARRISBURG, Pa. – In an effort to transform lives and change futures for its students, HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, held its 2018 Day of Giving on April 18, 2018.
The fundraising event was successful and – with your help – raised more than $59,000. Final totals are still being calculated.

Dauphin County Commissioners Support Live at Rose Lehrman
HARRISBURG, Pa. – A $5,000 grant from Dauphin County Commissioners Jeff Haste, Mike Pries and George P. Hartwick III provides support for the Live at Rose Lehrman (LARL) Artist Series in 2018.
For 42 years, the LARL Artist Series and the Rose Lehrman Arts Center on the Harrisburg Campus of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, have served the College and the Central Pennsylvania region as a resource for cultural and artistic expression. Each year, the LARL series presents a variety of distinctive, diverse, high-quality and professional offerings of live dance, music and theatre events that bring audiences to the campus.
This funding will help to bring new patrons to the Rose Lehrman Arts Center by attracting audience members from outside of south-central Pennsylvania.
