As proud sponsors of Aurora Theatre, we recently provided complimentary tickets to hundreds of our customers for a performance of the classic musical Mary Poppins.
In addition to rewarding our customers with these free tickets, we also used this performance to highlight a critical food shortage in our community. We asked that each family bring at least one paper or plastic bag filled with food and other most needed items to the performance.
We were so pleased to see an outpouring of support by the attendees, which amounted to over a half ton of food and other essential items that would go directly to local food banks.
To encourage contributions, Matthew and Suzanne provided raffle tickets for every item that attendees brought. At intermission, a drawing was held for Aurora tickets and a $250 Visa gift card!
We were very pleased to give back to our patrons who so generously donated food to Gwinnett food banks.
For those that were able to attend this spectacular performance of Mary Poppins and make a difference in our community, our family would like to say a very special thank you.
