We Invite You To Take A Seat!

Don’t miss this opportunity to support the performing arts in all Hopewell Valley schools. For a contribution, you can have a personalized engraved plaque affixed to the arm rest of a seat in the Performing Arts Center at Hopewell Valley Central High School. Your plaque becomes a memorable way to honor an individual, group, or class, or commemorate a special achievement or significant event.

When you Take A Seat, you are taking a stand to support the performing arts programs in every Hopewell Valley district school. Students will benefit from superior facilities and exposure to specialized programs in the arts. The community-at-large will enjoy an income-generating performing arts facility capable of attracting professional artists and musicians. Your donation will help raise the auditorium to the level of a true performing arts center through important and necessary improvements.

Funds raised through the Take A Seat program have funded items such as new lights for the PAC and wireless headsets for the stage crew.

Seat prices range from $100 to $750, depending on location in the auditorium.
