The Campaign to Expand the Grand Cinema!
Oct 20, 2009 - Jan 20, 2010
Dear Grand Cinema supporter-
We have big plans and we need your help! For years we have wanted to add an additional theater to the Grand. With a newly signed lease extension through 2025, we are happy to report that this is now possible. As a member of the Grand, we want to let you know about the plans and ask for your help in bringing the project to completion. Here are some of the details:
This is a major undertaking for the Grand but we know we are up to the task. The entire project is expected to cost just over $500,000. We are happy to report that through savings and early fundraising, we have close to $400,000 towards this project already raised. For the remainder, we ask for your help. Every individual is just as important now as they were in 1997 when we were founded by volunteers. Every effort, every donation is crucial. We are a community of people who enjoy film and our efforts today will bring the movies of the Grand to even more people in the future.
This project is on an aggressive time table. Our hope is to have the project completed by Christmas of this year. That would allow us to bring you additional films during our most important time of the year -- Academy Awards season. We ask you to dig deep for this one time opportunity to make a real difference in the history of the Grand Cinema. Can we count on your support to meet that goal?
Follow this link to DONATE (all donations are tax-deductible). Or, download the PLEDGE FORM, and send it to us at the Grand Cinema. Gifts of any amount are welcome. Larger gift levels of giving will receive permanent name recognition in the cinema (see pledge form for details). Gifts can be made via mail with the form, at the Grand Cinema or on our website. Pledges of over $500 can also be given over two years if desired.
Thank you for your past and continued support of the Grand Cinema. We look forward to seeing you in our new fourth theater.
