This really is a quick way to be part of history. The Cascade Theatre deserves to be more than a memory and for movie buffs this is a WHERE IT ALL BEGAN experience.
This is another great example of profit and nonprofits working together to make a community a better place to live. Here we have the Warner Film Center, the Marine Corps League, Eckles Architect, the Scottish Rite Cathedral, Lawrence County Tourism, the Lawrence County Historical Society, and both County and City officials all working together to preserve history and improve our downtown.
This $100,000 donation has enabled the WFC to kick start our local fundraising. We have immediately used this donation to begin a Sweepstakes raffle. Our 1st prize will be a 7 night stay in a luxury resort in Orlando, Fl., 2nd prize is a 3 night getaway in Nashville, and our 3rd prize will be a 3 night stay in the Smokey Mountains. Printing 1,000 tickets and selling them at $10/ticket will provide WFC with some quick and essential cash. We have posted our Sweepstakes on our website at warnerfilmcenter.org. This is a great example of taking a donation and using it for both PR and creating additional cash.
