NLAC News - March 2023

Greetings from the Northern Lights Arts Council!

Thank you!

Thank you so much for making our first Giving Hearts Day a success! The total raised on Giving Hearts Day was $30,729. Along with the proceeds from the Roxy Fundraiser and other donations, we’ve raised a grand total of $37,000! These funds paid for the roof repair and will be used for the marquee restoration. Any excess will be used for other necessary repairs and updates to the theater. We look forward to updating you with our progress!
