The Great Lakes Center for the Arts Annual Fund 2018
When the doors open on July 7, 2018, a new era of the performing arts will begin in Northern Michigan. Following the announcement of the Premiere Summer Season of Programming, the Center is launching the Inaugural Annual Fund Campaign.
Serving a five-county region of approximately 135,000 year-round residents, the Center will serve as a cultural and social hub for Northern Michigan, welcoming all patrons impassioned by the performing arts to experience an outstanding year-round line up of events including ballet, country, jazz, symphony, comedy, and more!
With less than half of annual operating expenses supported by ticket sales, your gift is vital to the success of the Center’s commitment to providing diverse year-round programming with accessible ticket pricing and meaningful educational initiatives.
