The Teche Center for the Arts recently received a sponsorship to underwrite the entirety of its recent Treble on the Teche camp.

Breaux Bridge-Hancock Whitney Bank awarded the center a $5,000 donation, marking the first time Treble on the Teche has been underwritten by a private sector donation.

This year's camp was held on November 23-25 and incorporated several safety measures amid the COVID-19 pandemic, like not holding classes outdoors. But organizers wanted to continue the camp's mission.

"To deliver Treble on the Teche safely and successfully, Treble being our most beloved and popular program, when we are all dealing with drastic changes due to COVID-19, has been a highlight of the year. Raymond wants to assure the community that TCA continues to pursue its Mission and is forward-focused on delivering relevant, safe, and much-needed activities, like the Christmas Drive-by Party initiative. "We're listening to what the needs are. People need to feel like they are part of the community now more than ever. That's the spirit of Christmas and the job of TCA-to bring people together."

Hancock Whitney's donation provided scholarships for families who couldn't afford the camp, paid for all art supplies, and compensated the Teaching Artist instructors. TCA was also able to offer a diverse group of children opportunities to learn traditional Cajun musical instruments, songs, games, and create art.
