Donations to O.P.E.R.A., Inc.’s “Next Step” fund drive now total more than a third of the $50,000 goal. Approximately $8,500 in donations have been received as of June 30. With the dollar-for-dollar match, contributions to date now exceed $17,000.
O.P.E.R.A. kicked off the matching fund-drive in late April to help pay for improvements aimed at increasing business and community use of the historic Ellendale Opera House. The campaign goal is $50,000, with all contributions up to $25,000 matched dollar-for-dollar by anonymous opera house supporters.
THOSE WHO DONATE $250 OR MORE TO THE NEXT STEP FUND-DRIVE BETWEEN NOW AND JULY 31 WILL RECEIVE A CUSTOM-DESIGNED O.P.E.R.A. MUG.
