Tower Theater calls on community on #GivingTuesday

Tower Theatre

BEND, Ore. (KTVZ) -- On Tuesday, Dec. 1st, the nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation joins the #GivingTuesday movement - a global day of unity to unleash grassroots generosity, inspire citizen engagement and encourage corporate giving.

Money raised December 1st will help make up the nearly $800,000 the Tower has lost in rental revenue and ticket sales since the first COVID shut-down in March.

“The Tower has been a beacon and our community gathering place for eight decades, surviving wars and recessions. She is resilient,” declared Ray Solley, executive director of the nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation. “But the survival of live performing arts now requires an all hands on deck effort and support from across Central Oregon.”

The Tower’s one-day goal is to raise $20,000. The nonprofit Tower Theatre Foundation Board Members have pledged a $10,500 match in support of this historic landmark. AND the Tower will host two Bonus Giving Hours featuring special offers for contributions made between 8am-9am and 5pm-6pm:

$80 = Two Free Drinks Redeemable at Concessions

$160 = $20 Gift Certificate Toward a TTF Show

$300 = Two Tower Hydroflask Tumblers & Bottle of Wine

$500 = Marquee Message & Photo Op

$1,000 = Seat Plaque

To contribute to the nonprofit Tower Theatre’s #GivingTuesday efforts on December 1st:
