Great news - BUILDING UP made our goal! Final tally: you and your fellow circus lovers helped us raise $25,800!THANK YOU, from the bottom of our hearts, for all your support.
Over the past few years, we've been able to make major enhancements in every space
in our building. For example - a bigger stage, an aerial truss, and new mats in the Theater
. An expansion and new flooring in both the Green Room
and Trapeze Room
. A new flying trapeze net
and even more needed equipment across all our departments. All of this has made training and performing at Circus Center even better, and it was all thanks to support from you, our community.
And now, because of BUILDING UP, just look at what you've made possible:
- New floor mats for the Main Gym
- Permanent performance lighting to make gym shows easier and cheaper
- Restuffed and repaired crash pads
- Vital roof repairs to protect our building this winter
- New flooring for the Lobby
But that's not all. By supporting BUILDING UP and these vital improvements, you helped us take the last big step we needed to create a regular community event, $5 Friday, where anyone can come and experience the unique joys of circus arts in this special place.
Thank you for being a part of BUILDING UP, and helping us take care of our home and build our community.
