Through the help of patron raffle donations, theatre leadership is able to coordinate financial scholarships for local high school seniors who desire to pursue further education in theatre arts. Due to your generosity as you purchase raffle tickets upon entry to one of our plays or musicals, young aspiring actors, actresses, musicians, and theatre technicians are aided in deferring the cost of higher education as they seek to acquire further training that will help them to be the best they can be. FCT pays out 50% of all funds collected from raffle sales and divides these funds among the winners of these scholarships. The remaining funds are awarded to one raffle winner at each show. Occasionally, the raffle winner will return these funds to FCT to be added to the scholarship account. This is another way that you and FCT partner together to make a difference in the lives of the residents of this and surrounding counties. WE APPRECIATE YOUR GENEROSITY AND COMPASSION TOWARD THESE STUDENTS!
