Thank you to CAC and Kiwanis
Dear Board Members, dedicated volunteers, alumni and friends,
I am pleased to announce that this evening UpStage Players was once more honored to receive grant funding from CAC (Cuyahoga Arts Council) for 2016. We were awarded the full amount that we applied for which was $5000. It is an awesome feeling to have such a prestigious, wonderful organization believe in our group and our mission to bring theatre to children. I thank all of you for your continued dedication in bringing the performing arts to the kids, for the arts can change the world.
I would especially like to thank Kristi Ward for the long evenings of hard work writing and rewriting the words that came from the paper to create what we are all about - you are appreciated with all our love and respect. Thank you Stacey Hoffmann - we know your hard work and effort made a difference for so many groups.
Thank you to the Kiwanis Club for also supporting us with a grant. The Downtown Kiwanis Club awarded UpStage Players $4000 as part of our operating budget for 2016. We sincerely thank them for their support of our group.
So team onto December 5th for the workshop and then auditions. Have a Happy Thanksgiving. And yes guys I am crying!
