OCAF is excited to announce the addition of Allison “Ali” Bailey as their new Executive Director. Bailey brings to the organization several years of experience in non-profit management and special event fundraising. Having led local non-profits such as the Boys & Girls Club of South San Luis Obispo as Executive Director and Director of Development at the Boys & Girls Club of Santa Maria Valley she comes to us with more than 12 years of experience and expertise in generating revenue and increasing brand value for local non-profits and city municipalities in Tennessee & North Carolina.
The Orcutt Children’s Arts Foundation was established in 2001 to empower young lives through the arts by raising funds to sustain visual and performing arts education and experiences for the 5000+ students of the Orcutt Union School District. Bailey says, “As a local resident of Orcutt and parent of two daughters in the District, this was an opportunity of a lifetime to work in my own backyard and use my experience to help raise awareness and dollars for an organization like OCAF that has personally impacted our girls and their art experiences.”
“We are thrilled to have Ali Bailey on board and look forward to making some new arts programming announcements for the 2016 year,” says Board President, Tom Apkarian.
