Today is giving Tuesday and while many charities look forward to today, Analog books in Lethbridge is using November 29th to donate a portion of their sales to New West Theatre which is dealing with a financial crisis.
“We’ve been a huge supporter of the arts and especially New West Theatre. They’re one of our favorite places to go personally, but also huge supporter of their programs. Last week, we got a notice from New West Theatre that they were undergoing some issues and that they’re running a promotion called Save Our Stage. So basically, they didn’t have as much take on their last couple of shows. So we thought that what we’ll do is a portion of our sales will be donated directly to them and anyone that wants to donate we’ll double their dollars,” says Warris.
Warris adds, the downtown business owners are a tight knit group and they hope residents will continue to give and support community theatre in the city.
