Some of us are old enough to remember the film “Support Your Local Sheriff”… .. and some of us aren’t. But either way, as LCTOS President Ken Double notes in this video, Giving Tuesday is a wonderful day to make a gift in support of the Mighty Wurlitzer!
We at the Long Center Theatre Organ Society approach the final days of a most eventful 2017 with great anticipation for the New Year. Successful shows; significant upgrades to the Wurlitzer; and the foundation for funding long-term find us almost giddy with anticipation.
For our friends, patrons, and event attendees, our thanks to you, as always. We look forward to seeing you at our next event, January 26th and Buster Keaton’s hilarious silent film comedy Steamboat Bill, Jr.
And one final pitch. It’s interesting to note that statisticians who track such things tell us that more than 10% of charitable giving happens in the last three days of the year.
That’s a not-so-gentle reminder to please think of us at the LCTOS if you have any thoughts of financial support. There might be tax advantages for donors.
And more importantly, if a donation is earmarked for LCTOS via the Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette, the LaNelle Geddes Matching Grant program could boost your gift by 50%! This is a great opportunity for donors and LCTOS alike.
I will see you January 26th, and again in June for our 36th annual variety show. Meanwhile, to all of you, I hope you and your families and friends have a joyous holiday season, a wonderful New Year’s celebration, and that 2018 is the best ever for all!
