Lamp Theatre group fundraising for lights, cameras, action
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.
