Brookwood nears fundraising goal for stage-curtain replacement

Brookwood has raised more than $7,000 in its efforts to replace the school’s stage curtains.

The full cost to replace them will be $15,000. In early September, the school received a dollar-for-dollar matching-funds offer from String Swing, a rural Ontario business, for this cause. The dollar-for-dollar matching funds means that if an individual donates $10, it will be worth $20 in real donation funds. 

The school now has set a deadline of Friday, Oct. 30, to achieve its goal of raising the remaining amount of money. To cover this expense, donations are being accepted.

The stage is used for various functions, including theatre productions, public speakers, the annual Veterans Day celebration, concerts, and other cultural and school events.

With improved facilities, the school looks forward to continued commitment to arts and community. If donations surpass the goal amount, additional funds will be used for updating lighting, sound, and replacing the main drape for the stage.

For more information, contact the school grant writer, Kim Neal Nofsinger, at [email protected]

Donations are tax-deductible and can be sent to Brookwood High School, attn. Kim Neal Nofsinger, 28861 Hwy. 131, Ontario, WI 54561. Checks may be made payable to Brookwood Theatre Activity Fund.
