$5000 Raised for Local Charities.
So excited to announce that TheatreNOW has helped raise over $1800 for Wilmington's Interfaith Network and over $3000 for the Arts Council of Wilmington. These charities were the choice charities for the local authors who chose to donate their time and talents to their causes. Celia Rivenbark (Rude Bitches Make Me Tired) will be presenting a check to Wilmington Interfaith Network on behalf of TheatreNOW's patrons and Clyde Edgerton's two receptions at the dinner show, Raney, and sales of his artwork raised more than $3000 for Arts Council of Wilmington and New Hanover County. Thank you to everyone who attended those two very special nights!!!
