WaterTower Theatre Announces Pay What You Can Proceeds Will be Donated to Puerto Rican Hurricane Relief
WaterTower Theatre Artistic Director, Joanie Schultz, today announced the "Pay It Forward with Pay What You Can" partner for WTT's upcoming production of Elliot, A Soldier's Fugue will be UNIDOS Disaster Relief and Recovery Program.
In October of 2017, WTT announced the "Pay It Forward with Pay What You Can" initiative in which all proceeds from PWYC performances are donated to various causes and organizations in need. The first PWYC performance of the season, for Pride and Prejudice, raised nearly $1,200 dollars for The Alley Theatre in Houston, which suffered severe damages following Hurricane Harvey.
In response to the immense devastation created by Hurricane Maria, the Hispanic Federation convened government, community, and philanthropic institutions and leaders to create the UNIDOS Disaster Relief and Recovery Program.
The goal of the UNIDOS Program is to serve the immediate and long-term needs of families and communities in Puerto Rico. To do so, the Federation has taken unprecedented action, helping to coordinate hundreds of donation drives in the U.S. mainland, distributing millions of pounds of food, water, and essentials to those most affected by the storm, delivering emergency relief aid to over 70 municipalities, and seeding an additional three million dollars to support emergency relief and recovery projects throughout Puerto Rico.

The 2017-2018 Pay It Forward with Pay What You Can series is sponsored by Holly and Tom Mayer.
