The Young Audiences of Abilene is celebrating their 20th anniversary by thanking their volunteers on Monday, September 9.

The group will host a luncheon from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. that will also express their appreciation to the schools they're involved and donors over the years at the Abilene Public Library. As part of the celebration, a Houston hip-hop group will perform.

In addition, they will also be a part of this month's ArtWalk.

The nonprofit program introduces the arts to children by bringing professional performers to schools across the Big Country. They work with schools to show how fine arts can help academic performance.

Last school year, 14,475 children experienced a Young Audiences program.
