Tino Bernadett Attends “Into the Blue” Fundraiser

Tino Bernadett and Martha Molina Bernadett have been supporters of Thea Foundation, an organization that advocates the importance of the arts in the development of Arkansas’s youth for several years.


To continue their support of Thea Foundation, Tino Bernadett attended their recent fundraiser, “Into the Blue”.

About Into the Blue

Into the Blue, one of the major fundraisers of Thea Foundation, was held Sept. 17 at the University of Arkansas-Pulaski Technical College Center for Humanities & Arts. Faustino Bernadett believes that Into the Blue boosts the arts education in Arkansas which is a great feat as it both aids the Into the Blue but also promotes the local talent that Arkansas offers.
