Thanks to longtime supporter Christy Love, donations made to the WYO Theater on July 13, via WyoGives, will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $6,000.
WyoGives – an initiative of the Wyoming Nonprofit Network – is a statewide, 24-hour online fundraising event designed to bring the state together as one community to raise funds and awareness of Wyoming nonprofits.
The WYO Theater is participating in WyoGives in an effort to raise funds to purchase a new projector for the theater.
According to Executive Director Erin Butler, part of WYO’s vision is to provide world-class arts to communities in Sheridan and Johnson counties. This vision is satisfied by programming that requires the use of a high definition projector. Without a new projector, the WYO would no longer be able to offer monthly viewings of The Met Live in HD or National Theater Live, which broadcasts live opera and theater productions from New York’s Metropolitan Opera and the National Theater in London. Nor could the theater offer events requiring the use of a projected image such as demonstrations, lectures or film series”. Any donation will help the theater achieve this goal and provide new artistic opportunities for our community.
Additionally, the Wyoming Nonprofit Network has arranged a dollar-for-dollar match for many online donations made to support Wyoming’s nonprofit sector. Visit wyogives.org anytime on July 13 to donate to the WYO Theater.
