Buchholz Drama

We need money!

Buchholz Drama is performing mainstage for the 2015 state thespian festival in Tampa, Florida. It has been 21 years since Buchholz Drama was last asked to perform mainstage. This is a huge honor and recognition of our drama program.

In the thespian world, this achievement is equivalent to a sports team winning a state championship. The state thespian festival in Florida is the largest thespian festival in the world. That's right, larger than the national festival, festivals in states like New York or California, or any other country. Attendance in Florida is typically 8,000 - 10,000 people. This a massive honor and opportunity.

There will be two same-night performances of "Night of the Living Dead" at the legendary Tampa Theatre. The Tampa Theatre seats 1,410 people, and both of these performances have already sold out! We project that the additional expenses for transporting the set, makeup, student transportation, fuel, printing, and more, will be $4,500.

We will be conducting fundraising to help offset these expenses, and donations, large and small, are greatly appreciated. If each of our Facebook friends donated $10, we would exceed our goal. Checks can be made payable to Buchholz Drama and mailed to Buchholz High School Drama Dept., 5510 NW 27th Ave., Gainesville, FL 32606.

We are in the process of setting up the BHS Drama Boosters as a non-profit Florida corporation with IRS 501 (c) (3), tax exempt, and charity status, but this is many weeks away from being complete. If we were to setup a PayPal account now to receive donations, it would all have to be changed once our new entity and tax exempt status is finalized, and new tax ID number is issued. Until then, one of our Drama Boosters is letting us receive donations through their business (Aliken Publications) PayPal account for those that do not want to mail or send in a donation, and donate via PayPal or a credit/debit card. 100% of the donated funds, less the normal PayPal surcharge charged to the business, will be given to BHS Drama. If we had our own PayPal account, we also would also be charged the surcharge directly, so there is not any difference in the amount we would receive. Please note that donations to the BHS Drama Boosters by any method, cash, check, credit card, etc., are not currently tax deductible. Once we receive tax exempt status from the IRS, that will change, but that is weeks away. We do appreciate your support.
