The Fund Raising Committee of the Friends of the Finke Theatre introduced a new concept this year. The tier donation is used in many theaters to raise funds and for the first time it is being offered at the Finke. Response to this has been remarkable and a thanks to all who have donated so far. There is still time to be included. Please contact Ramona Hader 573-286-2259 for further details!
In addition, the Committee is again offering "Early Bird Special" sales for the drawing to be held during the Ozark Ham and Turkey Festival. Contact any board member for pre-festival tickets. Tickets will be available at the event but will be at original pricing.
As with all donations to the Finke, the proceeds will be used to keep theater and the arts alive in the community. Plan now to come and be part of The Historic Finke Theatre!
