The DuBois on Broadway 2.0 is now history after 13 months of planning.  According to the oral comments, it was a successful special event featuring delicious food, great facilities and staff, enriching musical program, entertaining oral auction, and a wide variety of silent auction items that encouraged those final bids.
This significant fund-raiser has hopefully brought more attention to DuBois Center and the many opportunities of recreation and fellowship enjoyed there by people of all ages. The proceeds from the tickets, auctions, and donations are designated for major physical equipment replacement (i.e. commercial appliances), site improvements and more. In addition, a special collection was taken to purchase a new big piece of waterfront recreational equipment, the WOW (Wonder on Water) offering.
This 2nd production of a Broadway musical revue was truly reflective of MANY people working in respective volunteer areas that showed TEAMWORK! Over 50 volunteers, 21 oral auction items, 94 silent auction entries (all donated by generous donors), attendees purchasing $50 tickets, and all the WOW donations resulted in a memorable event benefiting DuBois Center. A more detailed report on the financial aspects will be shared next week after the records are finalized. However, we will gladly accept donations for the new WOW in the swimming area as well as this special fund (just label Gala in the memo line) as  a distinction from a general fund donation.
Sincerest appreciation is extended to everyone who contributed in any way towards the memorable and successful DuBois on Broadway 2.0 evening.
