Wayne Center for the Arts holding raffle to fund renovations

Wayne Center for the Arts is trying to raise $30,000 for some much-needed renovations to its auditorium area.


It’s a difficult time for many, but it also is a time to be creative and support the creative spirit.

The Wayne Center for the Arts, 237 S. Walnut St., Wooster, is working hard to bring the community more options including renovating its auditorium space. The WCA is currently raising the final funds to complete those renovations, which include an upgrade in the concession area, two restrooms, new flooring throughout, new LED lighting, integrated sound and widescreen video projection.

This auditorium space will allow the art center to provide quality performance space for music, theater, film and dance while maintaining the multi-purpose nature of the space to allow for large workshops, streaming performances and event rental space.

In order to help raise the final funding needed, WCA is selling raffle tickets for a chance to win a custom handmade stoneware pottery eight-place table setting by local artist Emily Moorefield. Each setting consists of a dinner plate, lunch plate, bread plate, pasta bowl, cereal bowl, dessert bowl and coffee mug with a retail value of $1,110.

The raffle will be held through July 8. Single tickets are $25 with five tickets for $100. The fundraising goal is $30,000.

To purchase tickets, go to www.wayneartscenter.org, go under the Get Involved tab and drop down to Mariola Pottery Raffle.
