A message from The Park Theater Trust:
 
Dear Fellow Members of the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce and Overall Community who attended last Wednesday’s Chamber event,
 
On behalf of The Park Theater Trust Board of Directors and our design and build team, Bali Construction, Arcsine, and The Shalleck Collaborative, we would like to thank you all for attending the Summer Mixer. The energy and support from everyone was just fantastic, and so gratifying. We are grateful to each of you and to the Chamber for all the kind words and genuine interest in our plans. We know Jaimi and Adam of CinemaSF felt very welcome.
 
Please stay in touch with our progress through our website parktheatertrust.org. We also hope you will consider attending the Shawn Raiford Park Theater benefit dinner concert hosted by The Hideout Kitchen on October 5. Please remember space is very limited so be sure to buy your tickets soon (also through our website). And remember the challenge match of $350,000! Every dollar will be matched up until December 31, 2022. The success of this generous effort will have a huge impact on moving this renovation forward.
 
Thank you again, and enjoy the rest of your summer. We will see you at Art & Wine, September 17 & 18!
 
Warm regards,
Kathy and Tracey
