Tuesday night, the Mason Community Players advanced to the fifth and final round of Brackets for Good, a non-profit fundraising competition. This is MCP’s first time participating in the event, which will award $10,000 to the final winner.
In the last four weeks, MCP has raised nearly $10,000 from existing members, new and old patrons, friends and family, as well as their corporate sponsor, Joseph Autogroup, and are now the only remaining theatrical organization.
“It’s pretty amazing,” says Peyton Hahn, Vice President of the group, “in four weeks we’ve raised nearly the amount of money in cash donations that we did in all of 2017. And for a smaller group like ours to make it this far is unbelievable. It really speaks to the dedication of our members, our patrons, and our sponsor to make something like this happen.”
But it all comes down to 8:00 PM Friday night, April 6th. That’s the deadline for donations for the final round, and a champion will be crowned. Of course, there are no losers in Brackets for Good – all organizations keep their donations regardless of whether they win or lose the round.
The Mason Community Players would be extremely appreciative of any and all support from the Cincinnati theatre community.
