As proud supporters of the arts and the Offical HVAC company of Aurora Theatre, we were thrilled to sponsor a recent performance of their hit musical, Les Miserables. Aurora Theatre is one of the leading professional theatres in the Metro Atlanta area, and we take pride in providing HVAC services to keep all of their patrons comfortable for every performance.
By sponsoring this performance, we were able to invite many customers, vendors, friends and family to see what is otherwise a sold-out production. We even gave away tickets to some of our Facebook fans. (Want to be a fan and get HVAC tips and great giveaways like theatre tickets? Click here!) Prior to the show, the lobby was buzzing with excitement and anticipation.
This gave Matthew a chance to mingle with the crowd and personally thank them for attending.
Many young students, including a troop of theatre students from a local high school, attended this show.
Just before the show began, our family had the chance to take the stage and say a few words. Since this is a rather sad show at times, we started by tossing out small boxes of tissues for the tears that would inevitably fall! The tissues were a huge hit and definitely put to good use.
Meanwhile, the real message we wanted to send to the 250+ attendees was one that is very close to our hearts. Unfortunately, there are thousands of families and children that go hungry every day right here in Gwinnett County and the surrounding area. While food banks get more support around the holiday season, it’s critical that they receive support year-round to fill the need.
This moment was used to raise awareness about the Holtkamp CAN Challenge, our effort to fill local food banks that has raised over 40 tons of food in recent years thanks to helpful individuals and groups. All we asked of the attendees was that they take an informative rack card and get it into the hands of a non-profit group like the boy scouts, girl scouts, youth groups, and other organizations that typically help gather food and other goods as part of our ongoing campaign to end hunger in our community.
With that special message shared, it was show time! Productions at Aurora Theatre are always top notch, and this show was one of the best in recent memory.
At intermission, we provided a special cake emblazoned with the logo of the Holtkamp Family Foundation, our non-profit arm that leads the charge for all our community efforts.
After the show, every attendee walked away with a Holtkamp CAN Challenge rack card and a renewed awareness of the local hunger problem.
Many thanks to all that attended the Holtkamp-sponsored performance of Les Miserables and made this a very special celebration of the arts and our community.
