Superior Auditorium receives 30 day-30,000 challenge grant
“30 in 30” describes next auditorium goal
July 22, 2021
The Superior Auditorium committee has received word of a $30,000 challenge grant offer from an anonymous Nebraska foundation to assist with payment of the newly installed heating and cooling system. The committee has formally accepted the challenge and is now requesting community support to raise $30,000 in 30 days…”30 in 30”. When $30,000 is raised locally, it will be matched by the anonymous foundation.
The committee’s goal is to solidify and demonstrate community support for the project through their fundraising project. Auditorium committee members are actively contacting businesses and individuals for contributions to reach their goal. “We have enjoyed outstanding community support in the past,” commented Beverly Beavers, president, “and have already raised a substantial amount toward our goal.” Anyone in the community is invited to donate and any amount is welcome. Donations are tax deductible and may be sent to P.O. Box 96, Superior, Neb.
The upcoming months will be busy ones at the auditorium. Dance classes,
taught by Erin Nelson will begin in August. Additionally, in August, spaces for the community wide garage sales will be available to rent thus avoiding temperature extremes and rain.
The following weekend, August 20 through 22, the Patriotic Productions display, “Flights of Honor” will be available for viewing inside the building. There is no admission charge and future information on display hours will be upcoming. Volunteers will be needed to help set up and dismantle the display.
Several other potential events are in the planning stages for the rest of the year but are not yet ready to be made public. The building is available to rent by contacting committee members Beverly Beavers, Sonia Schmidt or Steve Fox. The committee meets the 4th Tuesday of each month at 4 p.m., in the auditorium meeting room and extends an open invitation to community members to join them.
