Brentwood Theatre Backstage Fundraiser

November 22, 2008 by  

November 20th, 2008: Jean Armitage of Brentwood Theatre has just sent out a fresh new Press Release of the latest news and updates in regards to the Reaching Out, Building On Campaign to help raise funds for their backstage facilities renovations. With the help of many unofficial True Blood related fan sites helping out with the promotion of this fundraiser to help get more funds raised for their renovations PLUS with Charlaine Harris’s involvement – her endorsement as well as donation – this fund raiser has really taken off to a whole new level which is a true success. But as successful as it is they still need our help in raising more funds to meet their goal to complete their Backstage Facilities Renovations.

Here is a copy of the Press Release that was sent to me yesturday from Jean Armitage:
