The Civic Center Foundation is closing out the 60 Days of Giving with a live-streamed Telethon to raise funds to #KeepCrouseOpen!

Tune in for a variety show you haven't seen since the days of Jerry Lewis with local talent, celebrities, and community leaders. Schedule of acts to be announced.

The entire performing arts industry has been shuttered since March due to COVID-19. While many have been deeply affected by the economic crisis, the Veterans Memorial Civic & Convention Center has been ineligible for all the other forms of relief. Raising funds is the only way for the Civic Center to continuing operating in a way that supports the arts and economy in the coming years.

Your donations will help us keep our staff employed, the lights on, and the shows coming to Lima.
Keep the Civic Center strong, keep Lima strong. #KeepCrouseOpen
