Ashland-Greenwood Performing Arts Center Campaign Kicks off Public Phase

 

Ashland-Greenwood Performing Arts Center Campaign Kicks off Public Phase

The campaign kicks off with a Stir-Up Days raffle prize

 

ASHLAND, Neb. — The Ashland-Greenwood Performing Arts Center Campaign announced the kickoff of its public phase at Ashland’s annual Stir-Up Days, July 15-17. In addition to hosting a booth during the event, the campaign will sell raffle tickets to support the construction of the future Ashland-Greenwood Performing Arts Center. 

 

“Our existing performing arts space is a gymnasium attached to Ashland-Greenwood High School, which is shared with the Athletics program. Not only is this space insufficient in meeting the needs of our growing student population, but it also has inadequate acoustics, lighting, and seating for performing arts,” said the community leaders organizing the campaign.

 

“But this opportunity isn’t just for school-aged children. It’s a chance to create a shared venue for our thriving community — A place to bring in professional performances of all types and attract tourists and economic development.”

 

The campaign is raising a total of $4.5 million for the Center and has secured commitments of $2.7 million during its private phase from community leaders, business partners and Ashland-area natives. 

 

Stir-Up Days will serve as the first public launch event of the campaign featuring a raffle prize valued at over $400. Tickets ($20 each) are available at the Campaign booth in downtown Ashland July 15th – 17th. The raffle prize includes a basket that features: 

 

  •  A one-night stay at Carol Joy Holling Retreat Center.
  • The biography of astronaut and Ashland native Clayton Anderson.
  • A round of golf and two carts at the Ashland Country Club.
  • A package of Baker’s Chocolates (manufactured in Greenwood).
  • Two bottles of wine from Glacial Till in Ashland.
