Day Of Giving
For all of us who have fond memories of enjoying the arts and entertainment in Dayton Live’s (formerly Victoria Theatre Association) buildings, it is hard to imagine what attending performances in the future will be like. Along with theatres across the world, our stages have been dark for the past 15 weeks, our performing arts organizations silent. Our industry in Dayton is facing a multimillion-dollar loss through the end of the calendar year.
In an industry first, we have joined forces with other not-for-profit arts organizations who perform in our venues for a unique fundraising event on June 25, 2020, called Day of Giving: Preserving the Heart of Live Performance. A completely virtual fundraiser via social media (Facebook and Instagram @DaytonLive365) and this website.
Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, Dayton Dance Initiative, Dayton Gay Men’s Chorus, Dayton Live (formerly Victoria Theatre Association), Dayton Performing Arts Alliance (Dayton Ballet, Dayton Opera, and Dayton Philharmonic), and The Human Race Theatre Company are all participating in this important initiative. Join us for a day celebrating theatre, dance, music, song and entertainment!
Make A Difference for Dayton’s Performing Arts!
We invite you to help spread the word about the Day of Giving by liking, sharing, and commenting throughout the day.
