Give to the Max Day 2022
If you've visited Roosevelt Hall, you know what we mean by "chairs." We've heard the complaints and decided it's time to retire and replace the main floor chairs!
We are still considering our exact chair option, but we can tell you this: the new chairs will be padded and a substantial improvement over the hard plastic seat and back of our old chairs. Our patrons have been asking (or complaining) about the seats for a long time, and we hope to have them available for our 2023 season. We're asking for your support in their replacement. Our target is $10,000 for the project.
Funds received during previous Give to the Max events have directly helped us make substantial changes and facility improvements. We completed an interior paint job in summer 2020, basement Green Room floor rehabilitation/replacement in spring 2021, and investment in a new wireless microphone system in fall 2021.
Prairie Wind Players (PWP) continues to raise funds to support improvements in Roosevelt Hall. 100% of your donation goes directly toward capital improvements in our 88-year old venue.
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.
