R&S is a not-for-profit org and we are trying our best to keep ticket prices low while keeping audience numbers small.
In 2019, we hope to be able to purchase own PA system, much like what we use for our Beach Stage. With our own PA we would be able to present more music more often, in Sudbury, North Bay and at Fishers’ Paradise and other partnering venues. The cost of repeatedly renting a PA makes more presenting difficult. We are in discussion with Long & McQuade and a key funder – but we need to be able to kick in some cash as well.
If a PA is not attainable, donations will be directed toward the purchase or rental of a beverage cart that we can bring to the beach and the late-night dance party. We are also trying to budget to hire a year-round intern or two! Again – with the help of funders and, donors like you – one or more of these projects are achievable.
