Saturday, October 8, 2022, will make 47 years since Augusta Mini Theatre (AMT) was founded. We have historically hosted an annual fundraiser to assist with general operating cost (The Alumni & Friends Chef’s Showcase). Since the pandemic, AMT has done its best to keep our staff, students, and community safe; to do so we have adjusted our annual celebration by hosting an Anniversary Drive Thru.
Between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., on Saturday, October 8, 2022, Augusta Mini Theatre’s staff will accept donations during a Drive Thru-Horn Blowing 47th Birthday Celebration. During this year’s event, we hope to include our Chef’s, Restaurants and Caterers through Gift Cards. The gift cards will be available on a first come basis to those donors who give during the drive thru event. As the Augusta Mini Theatre recovers from the pandemic, supporters are asked to give a symbolic donation of a $47.00 birthday gift or any amount online at www.AugustaMiniTheatre.org, Cash App ($augustaminitheatre), Zelle (email@example.com) or during the Drive-Thru.
From our advertising and marketing efforts, we are hopeful that long time supporters as well as new supporters will drive into AMTs campus through the Edward M McIntyre Gate with their vehicles decorated, horns blowing and prepared to give. Once on the campus, visitors will notice a decorated and outlined path to travel along Mariah (Butler) Way where donors will be met by staff and volunteers who will accept their gift. Staff and volunteers will celebrate with donors and show appreciation for what has been given. Prior to exiting the campus, donors will receive sponsored (Augusta Regional Airport) items and a Gift Card from one of the participating chefs, restaurants, or caterers as a thank you for their support (while supplies last).
