Special Activities and Events were plentiful this summer:  Read about the success of our amazing Challenge opportunity – and our Grand NYC getaway Raffle . . . .

Challenge 2017:
It is a CHALLENGE to produce and present professional theatre as a not-for-profit arts organization.  While tickets, advertising, programs and grants are able to fund about 60% of our operations, we rely on charitable giving to supply the rest; and remain grateful for the generosity of all who contribute.

Some years the challenges are extraordinary – and this year, one generous benefactor issued a fundraising challenge that was met by the generosity of many, many contributors.  will offer not only much-needed additional support for this Season, but also put us on steady ground for Season 53.

With your help, we did manage to raise $40,000 by September 2 (Labor Day weekend) – and the Weathervane will receive a $40,000 gift match!  Our audiences and friends responded with new or increased gifts; look for our personal thanks in the weeks to come, each and every one.

Meanwhile, our Grand NYC Getaway Raffle winner was drawn just prior to the September 2 “Best of” performance. The Winner?  Dr. Clara Ososrio ~  congratulations to her, and to everyone who purchased one of the 400 raffle tickets!

We’ll be sending her and a companion to NYC this fall: with a 3-night stay at the elegant Shelburne Hotel, tickets to Hello Dolly! and Disney’s The Lion King, toasts and tours, and cash to make your way around the city.  Fun – and fundraising support for the Weathervane.  Read more.

Weathervane Alumni Association’s Encore! Project
Our alums (WVAA) have a special project of their own, and we’ve shared some news about their landscaping plans.  Separate from the Theatre’s fundraising projects, you can learn more about their plans at their own site.

And, of course, from time to time now through the summer we’ll likely have many more ways for you to celebrate with us.  Make sure you sign up for our enews [sign up on the homepage], follow us on Facebook, and check through this site frequently

You can show your support all year round – thank you to those who have already made a 2017 gift to the Weathervane.  You can make a single or repeating contribution all year round by visiting our secure online portal service at Just Give.
