2020 Fundraising Options Survey

  • The purpose of this survey of Opera Guild of Dayton members and friends is to determine in what manner Guild members and friends are able and willing to contribute in terms of time, talent and finances to support a fundraising effort. Two major fundraising events that were to be held in 2020 had to be indefinitely postponed due to COVID-19: o The annual gala event often known as the Opera Ball (An Evening at the Café Carlisle was this year’s theme.) o The BRAVO! Fashion Show The Guild normally makes a monetary commitment to Dayton Opera. This is Tom Bankston’s 25th season and the Guild has made a monetary commitment to donate $25,000 in his honor. In order to support the commitments of the Guild and to bolster the DPAA in this time of crisis, is it possible to hold a fundraising event? Will it be supported by the members of the Opera Guild? Please respond to this survey by November 10 to provide your input.
  • 1. Would you be willing to pay for and attend a virtual event (we’ll get more specific in a minute)?
