The Rowland Theatre in Philipsburg is one of 74 nonprofit organizations taking part in this year’s Centre Gives fund-raising campaign held by the Centre Foundation May 5 and 6.
We are excited to be part of this 36-hour online event. By going online at CentreGives.org and selecting The Rowland Theatre as the nonprofit you are supporting and making a donation on your credit card, you can be a big part of the theater’s future. The foundation will give each organization a portion of its $100,000 sharing pool, based on how much money the nonprofit raises. This helps the fundraising dollars stretch even further.
The money raised by the theater will help with our project to restore the original glass and copper structure of the theater marquee as well as help with operating costs and restoration. The theater will turn 100 years old in 2017. We are hoping for a yearlong celebration and hope to have the theater in good shape. So many friends and businesses have been there for us in the past. Please take a few minutes May 5 and 6 and support us for Centre Gives.
