We Were Overwhelmed by The Support

PKR and I just returned from our spaghetti fund-raiser to raise money for the Sixth Street Theater. It was a huge success.

Between the $5.00 admission, selling raffle tickets, and having tip jars on the tables, the theater raised over $2400 tonight in less than two hours.

The support was overwhelming.

People started streaming in around 5:15, and it didn't let up until after 7 p.m. We easily fed around 400 people tonight.

Not only did they get salad, spaghetti, bread and cookies, but some first class entertainment as well.

People in the Silver Valley don't want the theater to go away, and they showed us tonight that they were serious. But, Silver Valley citizens are known far and wide for their generosity.

So, we will keep plugging away, and prepare for the summer shows, and the upcoming season. It should be a great year. I'll be getting out information on the upcoming season, so look at the schedule, and make plans to come join us this year!!!

Wow! I am so glad the Silver Valley People are so generous. It reminds me of the days of the Sunnyside Chili Feed! Did you serve great pie also? lol.

We had church Praise Team practice last night and couldn't make it to the spaghetti feed, but I am SO glad it was a success. The people in the Silver Valley are very generous. Hope you are doing well Carol.
