Orpheum Theatre Seeks Volunteers for Annual Cleaning Day

Jewel of Galesburg needs your help March 7 and 8

Galesburg, IL. The Orpheum Theatre is looking for individuals and organizations that can spare a little "elbow grease" on Saturday, March 7 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 8 from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. to help polish the Orpheum Theatre during its Annual Cleaning Day.

The Orpheum encourages you to bring your friends, family, co-workers and civic organizations for a day of fun to dust, mop, polish, organize, and clean the Jewel of Galesburg. A lunch and cleaning supplies will be provided. Volunteers will also receive a voucher redeemable for a ticket to a 2009 Spring Red Carpet Series show.

For further information and to volunteer yourself, your business or civic organization contact Josh Damewood, Operations Manager, at 342-2299 or by DATE.

The Orpheum Theatre is committed to providing quality live entertainment opportunities to the Galesburg and surrounding communities. The Orpheum is a 501c3 charitable organization so moderate ticket prices and exceptional production quality are made possible by the generous support of individual and corporate contributors. The 2008 Red Carpet Season is generously supported by these organizations: City of Galesburg, GateHouse Media, Galesburg Radio, Comcast Spotlight, Illinois Arts Council and Knox County.
