Fund drive to recognize 80th birthday of Jeanette Robb-Ruenz, long-time leader and advocate for the historic Ellendale Opera House
Between now and July 20, 2019 all donations to the Opera House renovation project will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to a total of $25,000 by anonymous supporters.
So, if you donate $100 to the opera house capital improvement campaign, O.P.E.R.A. (Organization of People in Ellendale for Restoration of the Arts) will receive $200.
The charitable non-profit organization kicked off its Phase I capital campaign – Building Our Future & Preserving Our Past – last September to raise $560,000.
The funds will be used to renovate the street-level storefront spaces, replace all windows and landscape around the building.
