Director thanks supporters following busy week at auditorium
To the Editor,
The week of April 6 featured two fundraising events at the Tecumseh Center for the Arts (TCA); our third annual eco fashion show Junk to Funk was held on Thursday April 10, and a fantastic live performance by Grand Standard Time was featured on Saturday, April 12.
Thank you to First Federal Bank and Gallery One Antiques for their sponsorship of Junk to Funk. All of the delicious food that everyone enjoyed was donated by: Basil Boys, The British Tea Garden, Boulevard Market, Danley’s Country House, Evans Street Station, and Tecumseh Big Boy. And, silent auction items were donated by: Black Door Gallery, Busch’s, Carpet on Wheels, Companion Animal Clinic, The Daily Grind, Lois Fleming, Cathy Foreman, Great Ideas, Hacker Jewelers, Terry Hicks, J-Bar Hobbies, J. Trees Cellars Tasting Room, Jean Lash, Rainey Lopez, Macy’s, Martin’s Home Center, PAWS for Grooming, Gregg Perez, The Sports Hut, Tecumseh Paddling Company, Tecumseh Plywood, Unified Massage and Healing, Walgreens, and What a Find.
The TCA would also like to extend a thank you to Seasons Salon and Spa, Bad Hair Day, and “Team TCA” for donating their time and talent to participate in Fashion Wars.
The Grand Standard Time concert, featuring Tecumseh’s own Adam Smith, was sponsored in full by: United Bank and Trust, Tecumseh Place, Martin’s Home Center, Iott Insurance Agency, and Tecumseh Insurance Agency.
Tecumseh Place also sponsored a scrumptious dessert reception immediately following the concert.
And the Tecumseh Center for the Arts would like to thank Nate Smith for contacting all of the Grand Standard Time sponsors. Because of his efforts and the generosity of these sponsors, all proceeds generated from the Grand Standard Time concert benefited the Tecumseh Center for the Arts.
Please accept a heartfelt thank you from the entire staff at the Tecumseh Center for the Arts; we deeply appreciate the support we receive from this community. The TCA is proud to be the home of the Tecumseh Youth Theatre, Tecumseh Pops Orchestra and Community Chorus, The Kiwanis Travel Adventure Cinema series, the TCA Big Band & VocalAires, and countless area students that perform choir, band, and string concerts, or dance recitals on the TCA stage.
We are fortunate to feature national touring performers, and perhaps more importantly, our friends, neighbors, and children from our own community, sharing the gift of live theater.
