Nonprofit preservation group teaming with local businesses to save historic theater
TIPTON, Iowa—The Hardacre Theater Preservation Association (HTPA) is teaming with a local restaurant to reward donors working to save the historic Hardacre Theater.
Tiffiny’s Tipton Bakery is giving away free donuts, rolls and crescents Saturday morning, Jan. 11, to people who’ve donated to the HTPA’s online campaign to save the Hardacre Theater. The crowdfunding campaign through the website Indiegogo has raised more than $10,000 in two weeks. It must raise $60,500 to meet the purchase price by Jan. 31, which will be supplemented with a $40,000 matching donation from an anonymous party.
A “donation station” will also be set up at the bakery for participants to join the funding drive. HTPA members will be present to help community members donate.
The Hardacre Theater Preservation Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Learn more at thehardacre.org.
