Playhouse Gala and Auction – January 24, 2020

The Playhouse’s largest fundraiser will take place in less than two months on January 24, 2020.  In order to meet our goal to provide our kids, in OUR awarding winning Playhouse, with basic needs (costumes, music, lights, royalties & scripts, sets, etc.) we rely on the generosity of our parents, businesses, and individuals just like you, we wouldn’t be able to have an Awarding-winning Playhouse at all or a wonderful environment for kids.

In addition to the annual maintenance of the Playhouse, this a critical year for your support.  The anticipation of a new Playhouse is exciting and overwhelming.  It will take all our support to move out of our current location and go mobile for Mama Mia and the production seasons through 2022.

You can help by attending the Gala and donating BIG! To make it a success, we are asking local business owners, community friends and Playhouse families for donations. Your donation will enhance our auction and will give your business publicity as well. Your support would be greatly appreciated and needed. We thank you for your kind consideration. If you want to donate, please contact us at [email protected], or just fill out the form linked below or click this link.  Please also consider sending a few donation requests to your favorite business.  It is super easy, but we do need your help reaching out.  We have taken the pain out of thinking of who to ask, click on the google link for a donation list that includes targeted local businesses for your use.

Thank you for your help and dedication to the Playhouse.
