A “FUN-Raiser” happens when an organization purchases a Thursday evening show at a set price. This private event is held on a Thursday prior to our regular Friday through Sunday performances. The organization then sells the seats for the night and collects the proceeds for their own causes. They are also allowed to sell their own food items, bake sale, raffle, silent auction, etc.
The cost to reserve a Fun-raiser with ECP is…
$600 for a Musical
$500 for a Non-Musical
Throughout its time, local organizations have joined forces with ECP to hold private events. They have generated over $20,000 for their own causes. Some of these organizations include: ELKS, Rotary, PEO, Humane Society, Free Clinic, and various churches/spiritual organizations. This year we are looking to expand our offerings from solely non-profit organizations to schools and businesses wishing to raise funds, or hold private events.
