The Thousand Islands Performing Arts Fund at the Clayton Opera House is currently raising funds to install LED Lights on the Opera House stage.

The Northern New York Community Foundation has been generous in granting us a $10,000 matching grant to help us fund this project. To date we have raised over $12,000 in private donations and have met that match.

But we are still not quite there and could use your help. The project is anticipated to cost $35,000. We are waiting to hear about another grant that would bring down the cost of the project as well. If we receive that grant, we will only need to raise $7,000 more to complete this project.

LED lights will decrease costs by approximately 75-80% and decrease the heat on the stage. Additionally, LED lights are easier to adjust and more appealing for both the audience and performers.

Won’t you help us to meet our goal? To learn more about this project or to make a donation, please call the box office at 315-686-2200. We anticipate installing lights in mid-February. Help us to light up the Opera House stage with LED lights.
