Bay Theatre Fundraiser With Tim Allen Deemed "Big Success"
Aug. 9, 2019
During a sold-out screening of Toy Story 4 and an appearance at Suttons Bay's Bay Theatre last month, actor Tim Allen pledged to match all donations to the theatre received in July up to $15,000. Donations for the month ultimately totaled $25,000.
“It was my pleasure to host the premiere of Toy Story 4 at The Bay Community Theatre and to help the new non-profit theatre succeed” said Allen. “The theatre is a valuable asset to Leelanau County and I’m so pleased to see the strong community support” adds the actor.
“We are so grateful for the generous support of Tim Allen and our fellow community members. The theatre has a new life as a non-profit and with the support of our community it will keep it thriving for many years to come” noted Rick Andrews, president of the Bay Community Theatre, which is now a non-profit organization.
