Lopez Center Kicks off Fall Fundraising Campaign

November 13, 2013

Have you visited your Lopez Center for Community and the Arts lately?

This has been a full and exciting year! We celebrated several weddings, a Bar Mitzvah, the Trashion Fashion Show, and the Warmth in the Depth of Winter concert. Other LCCA events included the Fourth of July Barbecue, the annual tap show, theater productions, and the opening of the new skate park at The Retreat. In addition, the LCCA sponsored Ruthie Foster, Beppe Gambeta, La Familia Valera Miranda, and a three part contra dance series. LCCA is continuing to be a vibrant, active, and essential gathering place for our Lopez community and off island guests.

We could not do it without you and your financial support.

At this time, LCCA has seen increased costs in building maintenance as well as taking on important upgrades. One such improvement this year was our kitchen; we added additional cabinetry and full sets of rental dinnerware and cutlery to better serve weddings and other events.

While the LCCA is bringing in more revenue with an increased number of bookings, the fact is that we must continue to raise funds so that we can continue to offer affordable prices and fees and still meet our operating costs.

We ask you to consider a donation to LCCA in any amount. The enclosed form offers a range of gift categories. If you are interested in legacy gifting, please contact Janet Baltzer or Robert Harrison.

We greatly appreciate your support of The Center!
