This week long community-wide event will complete the rebuild of the GeorgiaTheatre in Athens, Georgia. Giving Athens residents an opportunity to add the finishing
touches on the historic Theatre, “Project Rebuild”
will conclude with the grandreopening of the Georgia Theatre. Everyday from Saturday until Friday for a few hours,Athens residents of all ages will have the opportunity to rally at the Theatre. Theirinvolvement will include painting the inner walls. Then, as it gets closer to the grandopening, the volunteers will participate in last minute errands of cleaning, sweeping,polishing, and setting up. With the Theatre being such an important landmark to theAthens community, identity, and culture, many Athens residents would be eager andwilling to help cap the rigorous and prolonging construction. In hindsight, this
community project will promote the local theatre’s rebuilding and renovation.
Not only will this event be an uplifting and community-strengthening initiative,
but “Project Rebuild” w
serve as a way to promote the local theatre’s reopening,
generating local involvement as well as significant press coverage.
“Project Rebuild” will seek sponsors to help make the week possible. Local
businesses will have the opportunity to get involved on several different sponsorship
levels. “Project Rebuild” will have one main sponsor, as well as several smaller sponsors.
The main sponsor will make a donation to help support functions including theperforming bands, making t-shirts, etc. Smaller sponsors will have the ability to donatepaint, cleaning supplies, refreshments, etc. The main local sponsor will fund any otherneeded supplies. In return, the sponsors will be recognized on all of the flyers, posters,and t-shirts made.Since Terrapin Beer Company is locally known, targets a similar audience as theGeorgia Theatre, and is involved in the music scene, it is the perfect main sponsor forthis event. The company will fund the bands, the promotional materials, and the beersserved the night of the event.
