2019 EXTRAORDINARY GIVE
NOVEMBER 22, 2019
The power of giving brings joy, growth, prosperity and unlimited possibilities to the arts in Marietta, Pennsylvania.
On Friday, November 22, 2019 the Marietta Center for the Arts: Home of Susquehanna Stage will participate in the annual Extraordinary Give campaign, hosted by the Lancaster County Community Foundation. 2018 was the largest Extra Give yet, raising over $10 million dollars for non-profit organizations across Lancaster County.
2018 was truly filled with inspirational giving – you helped raise over $9,000 for Susquehanna Stage’s new home – the Marietta Center for the Arts! The funds raised helped us accomplish many things in 2019 and went towards building our mainstage theatre space, stage lighting, sound, and implementing educational programs for kids and adults of all ages.
We are asking that, once again, you choose to contribute towards helping us make the arts in Marietta, PA thrive! 2020 is all about you and your experience – for the 2019 Extraordinary Give we are trying to raise funds to complete our main-stage theatre space by adding raked theatre seating for better sightlines and comfort, a tech booth that is raised out of the way so our working technicians can better deliver sound and lights without interfering with your experience. We are also working on plans to expand the number bathrooms for patrons, central air for the entire building, and becoming ADA compliant. In 2019 we started year-round educational programs for kids, and in 2020 we plan to continue that effort and begin renovating an Education Wing dedicated for classes such as dance, theatre and art.
We hope you consider donating to the 2019 Extraordinary Give or even by getting involved on stage, behind the scenes, & volunteering.We humbly thank you for your continuous support in helping the Marietta Center for the Arts: Home of Susquehanna Stage continue its path towards the future and enriching the community through the arts. We look forward to all that 2020 has to bring!
