Bridge Campaign

Thank You For Your Support

To Bridge the gap caused by the significant and ongoing cancellations and losses caused by the pandemic, Ovations has asked our loyal Members and corporate supporters to sustain and, if possible, increase their support via gifts to this extraordinary campaign to get us to the other side: Ovations’ 90th anniversary year. The end, we all hope, is in sight.

We are extremely grateful to have had so many of you generously join us and others in the community in this effort. We realize there are many, many worthy demands on your generosity during this unprecedented time, and we thank you.

We are grateful for the following generous contributors to the Bridge Campaign; for their trust in Ovations and for their belief in the power of the arts to lift us all.
