An integral part of the growth of Lucius Woods Performing Arts Center has to be attributed to our all-volunteer auxiliary, The Friends of Lucius Woods. Friends of Lucius Woods was founded in 1994 to assist Frank and Mary Geisen with the many challenges of running LWPAC. Since that time the number of members has risen from 25 to over 75. They help support the Center with annual fundraising, currently holding 3 great events throughout the year. An event in May gets the ball rolling, the Swing Fling golf outing in September, and a newer event, an Oktoberfest in ...October! They also have a Rummage sale just for fun. Helps clear out old decor and is for a good cause. These events are the backbone of LWPAC. Last year Friends raised over $17,000 to help keep the Summer Concert Series strong.
They put the "fun' in fundraising! Members also work the concerts, selling tickets, passing out programs and selling merchandise. Enjoy a great night of music under the stars while helping concert goers.
The Friends of Lucius Woods welcome anyone interested in joining. Friends meet only 4 times a year and are happy to have local residents and summer residents alike. Contact President Mary Jo Nelson if you are interested. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
