Lamp Theatre group fundraising for lights, cameras, action

| Friday, Sept. 23, 2011

Relight the Lamp, a group of area residents dedicated to seeing the Lamp Theatre in Irwin fully restored, offers a number of sponsorship opportunities to allow residents and businesses to participate.

Community members are encouraged to help "fill the house" at the revitalized Lamp Theatre by sponsoring a seat or handicapped-seating area. For a $200 donation, patrons can sponsor a seat with a name plaque in their honor.

"We know we have the community behind us, and we hope individuals, families and businesses will take advantage of the opportunity to help bring the Lamp back as a vital part of downtown Irwin and the area as a whole," committee Chairwoman Karen Glass said.

Other sponsorship levels are:

• Director's Guild -- donors of $20,000 or more, including $30,000 marquee and $20,000 lobby sponsorships

• Performer's Guild -- donors of $8,000 to $19,999, including $10,000 stage, $8,000 lighting system and $8,000 sound-system sponsorships

• Patrons -- donors of $2,000 to $7,999, including $7,000 projection and control booth, $3,000 office, $2,000 projection screen and $2,000 projection-equipment sponsorships

• Lamp Lighters -- donors of up to $1,999, including a $1,000 annual gold sidewalk-star opportunity and $200 seat and handicapped-seating area sponsorships

Other sponsorship opportunities will be announced as they become available.

Seat-sponsorship forms will be available this Saturday at the fall crafts show in downtown Irwin; Oct. 8 under the Lamp marquee during the Norwin School District homecoming parade; Oct. 29 during Irwin's Halloween parade; and Nov. 17 at Irwin's Light-Up Night. Forms also are available at Norwin Chamber of Commerce, 321 Main St., Irwin.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
