We are taking advantage of today's technology and holding our auction and telethon online. We believe this fundraising event can raise significant funds as we finalize construction and begin to order theatre equipment.

Also, a big thanks to all of the volunteers and our celebrity pledge takers for giving their time and talent to this endeavor that will benefit generations to come," said Steve Jackson, CEO and Managing Director of The Park Theatre.
