You, me and almost 150 of our nearest and dearest friends turned out last Saturday evening to celebrate and support free Shakespeare in the Park — well exceeding our estimated expected attendance of about 110. Photos are up on the OT facebook page.
Thanks to your efforts, we more than doubled our Wisconsin Arts Board grant. Good thing too — auditions are this weekend!
This was and continues to be a real grass-roots effort. A key focus for our fundraising is on individuals in the community who are opening their hearts and wallets to support something that they believe in. We continue to apply for grants and seek large donations, but this is where our foundation lies. It’s with you and me and all our compatriots who gave $15, $100 — even one extremely generous soul who gave $1,000.
Bask in the glow of a great outcome and let it feed your soul for the effort to continue. As the song says, We’ve Only Just Begun.
Sincerely and Gratefully,
The Whole Team
