RALEIGH COUNTY, West Virginia (WOAY) – The West Virginia Theater has brought back a fundraising initiative called Twelve Days of Christmas.

Theater West Virginia has been offering shows in the area since 1961. At the Grand View Amphitheater in New River Gorge National Park, locals can catch shows several times a year. But these shows need to be funded and supported.

“We get funds from the state, but we depend a lot on ticket sales and donations, so every little bit counts,” said Theater West Virginia general manager Scott Hill. “The more money we have, the more we can grow and do bigger and better shows every year.”

The fundraiser is in partnership with Stephen New, a Beckley attorney and former president of the Theater West Virginia. He pledged to double all donations during fundraising up to $ 12,000.

This is only the second year that Theater West Virginia has organized this fundraiser. They say last year was extremely successful, and they are hoping for a repeat.

“All the money was used, we doubled $ 12,000. And we hope to do it again this year like last year.

Theater West Virginia says they are very proud to continue to support the arts and provide entertainment in southern West Virginia. The Cliffside Amphitheater has been in use for 60 years now, and they are delighted to continue this momentum.

“The arts are a way to help your community come together. It’s a way for people to meet, mingle and be part of the community. Theater West Virginia has been doing this since 1961, and we hope to do so for another 63 years. ”

The fundraiser lasts from Tuesday, December 14 until Christmas Day. All donations will be used to support future shows at Theater West Virginia.

Donations can be sent online at theatrewestvirginia.org, or by mail to ‘Theater West Virginia PO Box 1205, Beckley WV, 25802.
