Give to the Max Day 2020
This Give to the Max Day, Prairie Wind Players (PWP) is raising funds to help support improvements in Roosevelt Hall. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our entire 2020 performing arts season was cancelled, leaving us with no revenue to reinvest in ongoing Hall improvements.
However, the pandemic has created an opportunity to make several substantial changes and address significant improvements. Without the need to work around our normal performing arts and event schedule, we have been able to address work not easily scheduled during a traditional season. One example of this work was a complete interior paint job completed in late summer, 2020. Our strategic planning process identified several expensive projects we will need to address with Roosevelt Hall in the coming years, including:
In 1981, when PWP volunteers first renovated Roosevelt Hall, and continuing since 1983 when PWP purchased the building, we have had tremendous support from our members, supporters, patrons, and the region in keeping Roosevelt Hall accessible to the public and in continuous use as an auditorium and performing arts space. We appreciate your donations toward maintaining this historic and iconic structure. 100% of donations are directly invested in our facility.
