Year-end matching campaign for Opera House renovation raises $20,000

The year-end matching campaign to help fund renovation of the Ellendale Opera House was a huge success.

Contributions totaling nearly $10,000 were made to the capital campaign between November 15 and December 31.

Initially, anonymous supporters pledged to match donations dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000. But when donations grew past $5,000, those same supporters agreed to up the ante to match the total $10,000 received during the campaign.

As a result, $20,000 will be added to the Opera House “Building Our Future & Preserving Our Past” capital campaign fund. With the year-end contributions, the non-profit charitable group that owns the Main Street landmark, is nearly a third of the way toward its Phase I goal of $560,000.
