16 HOURS. ONE GOAL.
WE DID IT…BECAUSE OF YOU!
Thanks to our generous donors, we raised over $80,000 for the Broadway Series. Thank you to each and every donor and the Dunham Fund. Every dollar made a difference!
6.16.16: Dream It. Build It. Believe It.
Last year, Subscribers, Single Ticket Patrons, the Dunham Fund, Artists and Paramount Staff came together to raise money to support the Paramount Broadway Series. In just 15 hours, we raised over $81,000. Every penny we raised went to ensure that we produce the highest-quality productions in the state, while offering tickets at the most affordable price of any major theater in Illinois. Together, we made the best musical theater in the Midwest accessible to everyone.
On 6.16.16, we will once again ask everyone to come together to support the important work being done on-and-off the Paramount stage. Once again, the Dunham Fund has generously pledged to match every dollar we raise in 16 hours dollar-for-dollar. This year, our goal is $90,000.
We have just ONE DAY ONLY to bridge the gap between ticket sales and the true cost of producing Broadway. On a national average, ticket sales only cover 50% of the cost of producing shows; the remainder must come from donations.
All funds raised on this day go directly to support the critically-acclaimed, awe-inspiring, earth-shattering phenomenon: The Paramount Broadway Series.
