WRFA’s Jason Sample talks with Angelo and Ylsa Giuffre of the Spire Theater to learn more details about their “Raise the Roof” fundraiser happening on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018.
The main roof at the Spire is in dire need of replacement so fundraising is under way as well as putting on a festival to preserve this historic structure.
Over 20 acts, bands, performance groups, and solo artists have stepped forward to volunteer their talents and will be performing all day from 3 p.m. until around midnight, Saturday Sept. 29.
The performances will take place on 4 stages at the InSpire Development Center complex; the main Spire Theater Stage, The Odyssey Hall Stage, Studio Metro Underground Theater and right outside in the courtyard in front of the theater on 3rd St.
Tickets to the festival’s four stages are available at inspirejamestown.com for $10. The Olive Garden has also offered to provide a Pasta dinner fundraiser at The Spire on the same day as the festival for an additional $10. Ordering your tickets in advance is greatly appreciated and all who buy presale tickets will be entered to win a prize.
The capital campaign recently started and has already raised over two thousand dollars. This is a long way from the 62k needed to replace the roof. Donations are being accepted and there is a donation option on The Spire Theater’s Facebook page or you can visit InspireJamestown.com.
