“I’m There In Spirit!” – Donation to the Black Rose Fund

So you can’t make it to the show to see your favorite actor, tech or musician? You can still support them! You can be there “in spirit”! Your “I’m There In Spirit Ticket” donation to the Black Rose Fund will help us to continue our renovation of the Higgins-Demas Theater. Thus far, the donations to  Black Rose Fund have financed the construction of a new stage, the expansion of the stage wing area and the purchase of new soft goods, including a new main curtain.  Thank you for supporting MDI Drama and our mission of providing excellent educational theatre opportunities to the youth of Mount Desert Island and its surrounding communities.

FUNdraiser to play the Game of Survivor in Africa!

This Castaway Collaboration is being hosted by a wonderful couple, Bill & Susan Weibel, whom I have gotten to know through other Survivor events. They are big fans of the game and they operate a primary Christian school in Potchefstroom, South Africa that serves underprivileged children from 4 years old to 7th grade.

Spaghetti Dinner Benefit for Wayne Thayer & Family!

My name is Taylor Shedd and along with my co-host Joe Beaulieu, we are working diligently on putting together a benefit spaghetti dinner and auction to raise money for our dear friend and co-worker, Wayne Thayer, of Brewer. Wayne, husband and father of 2 children under the age of 10, has been diagnosed with Cardiac Amyloidosis. A disorder caused by deposits of an abnormal protein (amyloid) in the heart tissue. These deposits make it hard for the heart to work properly. Wayne is currently in Boston undergoing stem cell transplant treatment, which require him to be in Boston 6-8 week. Joe, and myself, are raising money to help the Thayer family with any medical expenses and cost of living while they are in Boston. We would love your support/donations! All proceeds go to Wayne, Vicky and thei...
