This past Tuesday we opened our doors to our community with an open house, and what a success it was! Community members were welcomed in and offered a complimentary glass of wine while getting to meet KPC staff members, along with enjoying a few short performances.
By partnering with some other local nonprofit performing arts organizations including Jet City Improv, Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra, and Studio East, we were able to offer free performances in the KPC lobby. Some patrons stayed the whole night for all three performances, while others came in to see their favorite organization perform and then headed outside for dinner from the Crisp Creperie food truck that was parked next to the theater.
Everyone happily enjoyed the performances, and many generously donated to KPC and our partner organizations for GiveBIG. Though there were technical difficulties with the Seattle Foundation’s day of giving, KPC pushed through and was still able to make GiveBIG memorable with the open house. And on that note, we want to give a huge shout out to all of our GiveBIG donors, thank you for your support! Our hope is that we will be able to offer more fun and free events like this in the future, and donations from campaigns like GiveBIG and our annual fund will help to make that possible.
Thank you to everyone that was able to attend our open house, we hope to see you again soon!
