Thank You Donors

Thank you to our generous donors for your support of The Grand Opera House. The Grand wouldn’t exist today if not for the fervent enthusiasm of people in the community over the last 114 years.

Please consider a donation to the Grand. Your support will enable us to continue favorite experiences like GrandKids and Broadway shows, expand our film and family events, and offer new opportunities in the recently renovated lobby reception areas.
