The Board of Trustees, members and volunteers of Olympic Theatre Arts wish to express their sincere gratitude to the community members who so generously donated to our recent 100 day $100,000 Matching Gift Campaign. Contributors include 177 individuals, 32 households, 8 businesses, 2 community groups, and 2 foundations. Gifts ranged from $10 to $10,000. Proceeds from our Tony Awards night, “Lavendula” bench raffle, and donations for parking at the Lavender Festival helped us push past $108,000. This support truly demonstrates the value placed on the arts and the need for a theatrical/cultural arts center.

Thank you! 

The funds raised from our Matching Gift Campaign will help us get back into the theatre.
