"450 for the 450th"

450-logo-colorWhat is "450 for the 450th" you ask? This summer, in honor of the anniversary of Shakespeare's birth, GRSF has set a goal to add 450 new sustaining donors to the fold. These "450" will not only be critical to the future of the festival, they'll have a chance to win some amazing gifts throughout the season.

Follow the success of the "450" campaign in the lobby of the Performing Arts Center on the WSU Campus--for each new donor we'll light a birthday candle for Shakespeare. We need your help to have all 450 candles lit before the end of the season.
