“By everyone doing their small part we can completely transform a place, or a city, or a life, or a community. We’re celebrating the glory that can be brought by working all together .”
~ Barnaby Evans
At any one WaterFire lighting, up to 150 volunteers are needed! Representing “everyman”, the traditional Greek Chorus and our communal spirit, WaterFire volunteers dressed in all black create an unobtrusive and ceremonial communal presence, and partake in creating WaterFire at nightfall.
To light the flames of WaterFire Sharon we need the generous and voluntary financial support of our community foundations, businesses and citizens. All financial contributions to WaterFire Sharon are 100% tax deductible.
WaterFire Sharon is a nonprofit arts fund of the Community Foundation of Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio whose mission is to aid in the revitalization of the region, foster community engagement, highlight a diverse range of artists and creatively transform the city of Sharon for all to enjoy
