Matching Gift Opportunity!
Thanks to a very generous couple, beginning May 1, monthly pledges in the amount of at least $18/month will be matched $1.80 for every $1 pledged for the remainder of 2022. What a great way to turn your monthly $18 gift into a total gift of $50.40 to Flat Rock Playhouse. Every month! Your pledge of $18 today will total $144 through the end of the year and generate an additional $259.20 for the Playhouse.
Just a few days after moving from New York City to Flat Rock in 2016, David and Sharon Leiman decided to explore the arts in their new community. They saw Million Dollar Quartet at the Flat Rock Playhouse and they state “it absolutely removed the pain of giving up 34 years of attending the Metropolitan Opera and living just a few blocks from Broadway theaters.” They have since become regular patrons and major supporters of the Playhouse.
In 2017 the Leimans named the Leiman Mainstage to memorialize and honor family members who perished in Auschwitz among 6 million other Jews plus the millions of Catholics, gay people, people with disabilities and other minorities who also were killed in the Holocaust. In addition, the Leiman Garden of Remembrance was dedicated in 2021. The garden invites us all to remember, learn and reflect.
With a shared love for the arts, David & Sharon Leiman have championed five matching gift campaigns, allowing us all to keep the lights shining bright. In Judaism, it is common to give and receive gifts in multiples of $18 or "Chai", which in part signifies a good omen for life. Generally, these gifting rituals take place in connection with the celebration, honoring, or remembrance of loved ones. Symbolically, these gestures are representative of giving a gift of "life." The Leimans’ significant support of the arts at Flat Rock Playhouse not only gives life to remembrance of the Leiman Family, but it also gives life to the return of live theater and the performing arts.
Consider making a pledge of $18/month and help generate additional financial gifts to make sure Flat Rock Playhouse can get On With The Show and a wonderful new season of live entertainment! Click here to make a gift today.
