It's time for the sunniest fundraiser of the year!
Class Acts is Knockaround's ongoing campaign that aims to donate money, resources, and art supplies to local, underfunded elementary schools. Every year we visit 4th, 5th, and 6th-grade students to talk about the importance of art and then give them an opportunity to design their own special pair of sunglasses.
This year we selected three winning designs to produce and sell on Knockaround.com as our annual pair of Class Acts sunglasses. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these sunglasses will be donated to our charitable partner, ArtReach, a non-profit organization that connects practicing artists with students at local elementary schools with limited resources for art education.
Art is a crucial part of companies like Knockaround and organizations like ArtReach and plays a significant role in our daily surroundings. That is why it is so important for us to show young people the artistic career opportunities available to them in the future.

ArtReach provides a safe place for students to play, try, communicate, experiment, express, learn, accomplish, exhibit, and celebrate.
Here's how you can help:
Time: Volunteer in our admin office, at community events, pick up supplies to prep at your home, or apply to volunteer in the classrooms.
