A Raise the Roof Update!
More roofs than we originally planned were done in 2017! Besides the stage roof and the roof covering the corridor between the theatre auditorium and the former apartments, roofs over the emergency exits on each side of the auditorium were also redone.
Special thanks goes to the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs grant award of $50,000 and the Raise the Roof campaign organized by Abby Baker. Thanks also to all the people who contributed money, who attended the Raise the Roof concert series and to the Rotary Club Game Show Extravaganza. All of us together raised the money needed to match the grant award and get the roofs done. The list of sponsors and contributors is included with this article. Thanks also to Great Lakes Roofing who gave us a good price, so we could do more roofs than planned. Thank you one and all.
Another grant in the amount of $35,000 has been awarded by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs for 2018. More matching monies is needed to get the rest of the roofs on this huge building done.
Be sure to support all of our local sponsors and thank them for helping Soo Theatre “Raise the Roof!”
