First Fundraising Event
Kingman has talent and has come together to kickoff the fundraising effort to renovate the Beale Street Theater. It was held in the old Elks building located at Fourth and Oak Street in downtown Kingman. The building was donated for our use by owner Scott Dunton. He has been a great supporter of our effort.
The evening started with Marilyn Moser playing in the courtyard as supporters entered. She was followed by Black Lemon. Upon entering the building, attendees were treated to an amazing art display, organized by our dedicated volunteers to showcase local artists. Refreshments, donated by local businesses and our volunteers were served in the bar area. A silent auction was also available to patrons in the same area. We received a number of donations from businesses and local artists that helped raise funds during the evening.
The main gallery showcased talent from across our community. We were excited to have so many performing artists share their abilities. They filled up a full three hours of entertainment. It was a wonderful evening.
Please give a big THANK YOU to our sponsors who helped us pull of a very successful event.
