Snipes Academy of Arts & Design to Accept Funds Raised by a
Community Supporter & Students Learn About Kindness
Chris Cross America 2017 Bike-Ride for Snipes

Snipes Academy of Arts and Design will accept funds raised by Chris and Carol Brown on Friday, February 9, 2018, at 1:30 p.m. Chris and Carol Brown decided to travel across the country by bicycle and RV to raise money as a part of their church’s, Wrightsville Beach United Methodist Church, mission support of Snipes Academy.

Chris and Carol Brown will visit Snipes on Friday to talk to students about their journey “Chris Cross America 2017” and inform students that they raised funds to purchase the school a 3D printer. The Browns shared their journey and adventures through their blog at

After the conclusion of the “Chris Cross America 2017” fundraiser, Snipes will then kick off their Pennies Campaign for Leukemia. Snipes will use these two events to talk about how someone in the community was kind enough to raise money and purchase something for the school so as an act of kindness the school will raise money to help someone else.

For more information, contact Rachel Manning, Snipes Academy Principal, or Stephanie Willis, Snipes Academy Assistant Principal, at 910-251-6175.
