TICKET SALES ACCOUNT FOR ONLY 75% OF OUR BUDGET
YOUR VIP MEMBERSHIP DONATIONS MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE!
With all of the costs associated with presenting these high-caliber artists and shows this season, our operating budget will exceed $2 million. For ticket revenue alone to cover Cal Poly Arts’ production expenses, we would have to raise ticket prices by more than 25% and consider cutting back on the top-level standards that you’ve come to expect from the events we present at the Performing Arts Center. That’s why we count on generous community support to continue presenting the hugely popular shows you get to see right here in San Luis Obispo — with no expensive, time-consuming travel to Los Angeles or San Francisco — as well as having the opportunity to introduce international superstars and up-and-coming talent to Central Coast audiences.
Last year, we successfully launched our VIP Membership program, providing new and expanded benefits for all of our donors. One of the most popular perks was offering additional subscription discounts, with savings as high as 25%! This season, we’re including even more benefits, so if you’re not a VIP Member already, it’s a great time to become one. Please consider supporting our mission to present the finest arts and entertainment at the Performing Arts Center and other venues across the region by adding a charitable contribution to your subscription order form or by clicking ont he links below for your desired VIP Membership Level.
YOUR CONTRIBUTION MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE – WE LITERALLY COULD NOT DO IT WITHOUT YOU!
