Funds are being raised to replace the Centre 64 theatre seats

The Kimberley Arts Council is looking to replace the seats at the Centre 64 theatre.

The campaign for new seats for the theatre at Centre 64 has started, and is already doing very well, says Carol Fergus from the Kimberley Arts Council.

The cost to replace 126 seats in the Centre 64 theatre will be close to $50,000 and the Arts Council is looking at any and all ways to raise funds.

One thing they are offering is a Seat Sale, in which you purchase an actual seat at the theatre for $250.

“We’ve sold about 12 of those already,” Fergus said. “Which is great. It actually costs about $350 to replace a seat, complete with installation, but we felt that was a fair price to ask for donation.”

The Arts Council will also be applying for grants, but Fergus explains that in order to make your application more attractive, you must prove that you are willing and able to raise funds in all kinds of ways.

In addition to the seat sale, thwe Arts council is also planning other events. The first is a garage sale at Centre 64 on Saturday, June 30 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Donations of good quality, clean, reusable items are appreciated, can be dropped off or arrange for pick up prior to the 28th of June.

Also coming up this summer, the Arts Council will host another Garden Gala long table dinner on August 11. Last year’s long table dinner was very successful.

Tickets are $65 before July 31st and $75 after, available at Centre 64. For any information on these events please contact Centre 64 at 250-427-4919
