Arts Coalition of Delta County is in immediate need of some equipment to be used in several events coming up in May and June.
A theater group known as AC Theater has been organized and plans to present its first play of the season in late May and early June. The group has some lapel mikes that will make it possible to hear without a struggle. The group has also found a new set of good mikes at a discount price of $490 which could get them through several seasons of plays and musicals.
The Arts Coalition is planning its second annual art exhibition, to be held at the Delta Elks Lodge July 5-6. Only artists from Delta County may show their art, at no cost to them. There is no cost to view the collection. Because AC/DC is counting on many artists to sign up for the show, it's secured over three times the space of last year's show. Professional art hanging display panels are needed. Maybe you could help by sponsoring a new panel at $290 each.
AC/DC is also scheduling several outdoor concerts this year beginning with the second annual 4th of July Patriotic Sing, just before the fireworks begin. The Cedaredge Community Band is also expected to play during the fireworks. For these concerts and others, AC/DC needs to purchase a large outdoor sound system at a cost of around $800.
Founding member Richard Weldon said, "We would encourage those who could afford to donate a small or whole amount of funds to the ongoing and expanding Arts Coalition. We can guarantee all the donations will go to our equipment needs and are tax deductible with the IRS. If you can't afford to help us with the needed equipment, we would hope that you can support us by attending our events, plays or concerts."
Donations may be mailed to Arts Coalition of Delta County, c/o Technical College of the Rockies, 1765 US Hwy 50, Delta, CO 81416.
