Holly "Raise the Roof!" Campaign Help us buy a new roof! Campaign over 2/3rds complete!
The Holly "Raise the Roof!" campaign is the fundraising effort by you, the community to reverse the effects of years of neglect on the historic building and on aging equipment. A new roof will cost $40,000, minor repairs (the awnings & marble façade), and an upgrade to the sound and lighting will require at least an additional $30,000.
As of September 4th, 2013, the Raise the Roof! campaign has raised just under $55,000 of the approximately $70,000 required. The Holly Gala, our annual endowment contribution, and the 3 Rings Circus represent the lion's share of contributions.
The project to replace the roof has been kicked off (hope for decent weather) and we are obtaining estimates on replacing the tattered awnings, repointing the mortar in the marble on the front of the building, and upgrading the sound board.
The Holly board is currently finalizing the budgets for the remainder of 2013 and all of 2014 in order to determine how much, if any, of funds from operations can be transferred to the "Raise the Roof!" fund.
