Tribute gifts are unique, personal ways to acknowledge, honor or memorialize a loved one. Tribute gifts are tax-deductible donations in any amount which are given to Victoria Theatre Association’s Annual Fund. The Annual Fund helps offset the costs of Victoria Theatre Association’s Education & Engagement programs, aids in supporting the upkeep of the venues, as well as support other general operating expenses. Patrons who donate a Tribute Gift can be assured a personal acknowledgement will be sent directly to the honoree or their family. Both the donor and the honoree’s name and personal tribute message (optional) are acknowledged in the Premier Health Broadway Series playbill for one year.
“I like to see remembrances in print because it may spark someone else to contribute. I used to think that paying for my subscription was enough to do, but I learned early on, that is not the case! I am a regular Annual Fund giver. I like to do something extra because of Victoria Theatre Association’s excellent programs, especially the Physicians for Kids Discovery Series. There are special funds so that students may attend. Gifts pay for their tickets and bus ride if they can’t afford it. I would much rather send money that works rather than buy flowers that wilt!” — Jeanette Patton (annual contributor since 1982)
“I give a tribute gift every year in memory of my husband, Lloyd, because he just loved the theater. My husband and I both grew up loving theater. We had gotten the right box at the Victoria Theatre and brought our son and daughter. When they grew up we got the left box for our granddaughter, and she started loving the theater too! Lloyd was a former City of Dayton Commissioner and former State Representative. I give my gift in memory of him.” –Edythe M. Lewis (annual contributor since 1978)
