Donating to the theater and the arts is a long and noble tradition. The arts have always needed patrons. As Wikipedia, the most trusted place in the internet(?), says, “Patronage is the support, encouragement, privilege, or financial aid that an organization or individual bestows to another. In the history of art, arts patronage refers to the support that kings, popes and the wealthy have provided to artists such as musicians, painters, and sculptors.”
BAT donors are in the ranks with kings, popes and the wealthy. Not that you have to be a king, pope or even wealthy to donate to BAT. Every donation, no matter how large or how small means the world to BAT.
Recently, two BAT donors agreed to match the first $10,000 BAT earned during “Out of Sterno” as part of BAT’s “Raise the Royalties” campaign. The deadline came and went. BAT did not reach $10,000. But the most wonderful people in the world donated $6,089.44, all of which will be matched! There are not enough words to thank everyone.
Next up at BAT is “Bob’s Holiday Office Party.” TICKETS This office party goes where few have gone before. Come and laugh away your Holiday stress.
It is not to late to plan your year-end charitable donations. Keep BAT in your Holiday giving plans. BAT is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, so your charitable giving is tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law. DONATE ONLINE
