The Oct. 1 events are fundraisers for the Black Classical Origins Program, which provides FSPA tuition assistance for Black students. The Spectacular Party raises funds for the new KidsTix program, which allows Flint-area youth the chance to experience the power of live performing arts with free admission to shows at FIM's Capitol Theatre, Whiting Auditorium, Elgood Theatre and MacArthur Recital Hall.

Tickets are also available for the September Spectacular Raffle. The winner will receive two tickets to the entire FIM 2022-23 season, a more than $2,700 value. The "All Together Now" season includes Flint Repertory Theatre, Flint Symphony Orchestra, Flint School of Performing Arts and Whiting Series Performances, plus five additional performances at the historic Capitol Theatre and the just-announced Whiting presentation of STOMP! Proceeds also benefit the KidsTix program.

The September Spectacular is a celebration of a new expanded FIM, which will bring the performing arts to life across the entire community in its exceptional venues and through its inspirational programs, according to FIM President and CEO Rodney Lontine. It also allows for the reveal and announcement of FIM's new brand, which promises to inspire transformation for decades to come - for all of Flint and beyond.

"With more than 100 years of memories made and hundreds of thousands of lives enriched, we embrace the future with hope and confidence," expressed Lontine. "We want people to celebrate with us! This is a significant time in FIM's history, and we wouldn't be here without the support of our community, patrons, students, staff, donors and so many others over the years."
