Due to the generosity of over 40 Rotarians The Grinch Theater event was a resounding success. We did the following:
~ we completely subsidized 22 children from the East Durham Children’s Initiative to attend the performance.
~we hosted the EDCI children, chaperones and staff at a pre-theater reception with sweets and beverages……in the former DPAC President’s Lounge with space donated by DPAC.
~we had a wonderful Fellowship lunch of Rotarians, family and friends at Tobacco Road and then 30 of us attended the performance with great seats in The Grand Tier. This is one of our first events to include young children and truly was a family event.
~through pledges and ticket sales we raised $1,500 for the Brown Family Scholarship Fund, which will be awarded later this year to an economically challenged student graduating from the Emily K Center’s Scholars to College program.
Many thanks to all of you who supported this event, and to Carver Weaver who spent countless hours working with DPAC, EDCI and our Rotary Club to make this event successful.
