Each year, the Northumberland Players supports 6 post-secondary students in the community through a $3,600 scholarship program, recognizing their contribution to performing arts.
This is usually done with funds raised through our 50/50 draws at our dinner theatre. With the COVID pandemic, we have had to suspend all of our productions, which means we have not been able to raise any funds in the usual way.
Earlier this month, the Best Western Plus Cobourg Inn & Convention Centre partnered with us to offer a take-out dinner – through this initiative, we were able to raise an impressive $1,020! Added to funds already in the account from previous years’ fundraising, this brings us to $3,440 – SO CLOSE to our target, but not quite there yet!
So we are appealing to you to help us bridge the gap and honour our commitment to youth in Northumberland. Did you miss the dinner fundraiser? Would you like to send a donation to this community initiative?
Every donation $20 or above will be acknowledged with a tax receipt, and donations can be made either by cheque or etransfer (please mark either with “Youth Scholarships” so we know where to allocate your donation!).
