Hot? BLT’s 24-Hour 9-10-11 Fundraiser Will Have Air Conditioning All Weekend!
Our friends at Burien Little Theatre want our hot and sweaty Readers to know that if you get too hot and sweaty this weekend (highs predicted in the upper 80s), you can cool down at their air conditioned, 24-hour, non-stop ‘9-10-11’ fundraiser performance (we’re Sponsors) that runs from 9 a.m. Saturday through 9 a.m. Sunday.
Admission to 9-10-11 performances is “donate what you will” or sponsorship by the hour, from 50 cents to thousands of dollars. Since 9-10-11 is a fundraiser, every dollar donated is appreciated. Burien Little Theatre is being required to replace their stage curtains to meet fire code, and the cost is approximately $6,500. BLT also needs another $2,000 to match a lighting grant.
9-10-11 sponsorship forms can be found online at Burien Little Theatre’s website, or donations can be made at the event.
And remember, there is plenty of free on-site parking and FREE air conditioning!
Burien Little Theatre is located in the Theater at the Burien Community Center Annex, located at:
14501 Fourth Ave. S.W.
Burien, WA 98166
Look for the Annex at the northwest corner of the intersection of 4th Ave SW and SW 146th Street in Burien, with the parking lot entrance on Fourth. (Directions are available under “Find Us” at www.burienlittletheatre.org).
