Help Purchase Spot Lights

All of the equipment and facilities necessary for producing stage shows, which was available in the 70’s is gone, and it’s now necessary to acquire it. For example, 2 powerful spotlights are necessary for proper stage lighting, and 2 new spot lights would cost over $35,000. However, past Stage Crew member Gary Beckstedt, Sr. ’69, now in Atlanta, has found 2 used spot lights that can be acquired for $6,000. Further, Gary has kicked off a spot light campaign with a donation of $500. Help us raise the money needed to purchase these lights while they’re still available by clicking HERE.
