Donations needed for JCT’s Vandal Award

Once again the Jamestown Community Theatre is getting ready to offer up to two awards for $1,000 each to graduating seniors for achievement in theatre and performing arts. This award recently was named the Patti Vandal Award.

Patti was a founding member and the music director of the theatre for nearly 20 years. Patti passed away in 2010 and her family blessed the theatre by asking family, relatives, friends and community members to donate funds to the Jamestown Community Theatre in her memory. With heartfelt thanks, our annual award has become known as the Patti Vandal Award.

Once again, we are asking for donations to supplement what the theatre already intends to fund for these two awards. With recognition of Patti’s passion, talent, patience, sense of volunteerism, and, of course, immeasurable love for children, we hope that in Patti’s name we might receive some contributions once again.

Please send tax-deductible donations to the Jamestown Community Theatre, P.O. Box 14, Jamestown, RI 02835. Checks should be made out to the Jamestown Community Theatre, but in the memo area please write “Patti Vandal fund.” Please include your name and address so we can acknowledge your gift.

The qualifications for the awards will be announced in early April in the Jamestown Press. Thank you so much.

Mary S. Wright
Artistic director
