- Help the Reno Phil reach our – fundraising goal of $40,000! We still have $3,965.00 to go!
Pops on the River is the biggest fundraising event of the year for the Reno Phil, and the dollars raised from the event allow us to bring the community music all year long. The Reno Phil hosts several free concerts annually, supports a robust music education program for our kids, and performs classical & pops with our professional orchestra and volunteer chorus throughout the year. If you are able, please consider making a gift to the Reno Phil today.
You’ve decorated a table. You’ve dressed to the nines. Yet, somehow, you still didn’t win a prize in the Pops on the River table contest.
Now is your chance for redemption! Submit a photo of your table & guests from a past event for another shot at the gold!
