Performing Arts Organization-PAO

About Us

The purpose of the Kohler PAO is to create a working relationship with the school and community in order to promote and support the music program.  The organization's main event is an annual auction. 100% of the proceeds from this benefit event are returned to the students in the form of either middle school music camp scholarships or financial support toward the high school performance tours. The event is a social highlight for the community of Kohler and generates tremendous interest in the performing arts. Since 2002, Kohler PAO has raised nearly $400,000 for the performing arts students of Kohler.
