ANNUAL FUND DRIVE
Dear Friends of SLCA,
The arts are alive and well at SLCA! As this year is drawing to a close, we have so much to celebrate!
Thousands of people attended and enjoyed our plays, concerts, and special events; visted the art
gallery, volunteered time, and contributed financially. You, our friend and supporter, are the heart of
the Center, the reason the Center is a vibrant and vital part of our community. All that we accomplish is
directly related to you.
Our new performance space, projector and screen are working perfectly for plays ad concerts. Over the
year, we have had some outstanding events, including Deconstructing the Beatles and a totally sold-out
Fiddler on the Roof, with actors from all over the Capital District and other states and students from
local schools. Even with a sold out show, we are still reliant on your support.
At this time year, we are reaching out to our friends for a donation to our annual fund drive, which
helps cover operational and programming expenses. We plan to grow our Endowment Fund in order to
use accumulating interest for capital repairs; what we like to call our "rainy day fund." We do have a lot
of rainy days at the Center - last week a pipe broke! The outside of the building needs to be painted, our
parking lot should be resurfaced, and our outdoor patio is in need of repair.
Excitingly, we have been receiving recurring monthly donations from individuals who would like to show
their support throught the year as a sustainer of the arts. If you are interested in becoming a
sustainer of the arts, please contact us at your convenience.
As we continue with our mission, to enrich community life through discovering, appreciating and
creating excellence in theater, the performing arts and the visual arts, we are tring some new varieties
of events like the Mop & Bucket Company Improv Night, Matinee Theatre Players, a community barn
dance, and the upcoming Classic Holiday Revue.
We thank you in advance for your generosity. We are your local arts center and truly do appreciate
