Bertram’s Globe still needs help

The owners of the Globe
Theatre in Bertram have been working to restore the historic theater since 2009
and while the restoration is nearing the end, they are asking for one final
push in online donations so they can purchase, ship, and install newly
refurbished "vintage” seats in the building built in 1935.
In order to restore the theater to its former glory, the owners Lance Regier and Zach Hamilton have launched a fundraiser that ends at 3 p.m. Friday on kickstarter.com. As of Tuesday, the theater received over 74 percent of its goal, or about $18,600 of the $25,000 needed for the 300 seats.
The only catch is that in order to receive funding, the theater must attain 100 percent of its projected goal, or all of the $25,000, in online donations. If the theater does not reach their goal by the end of Friday afternoon, the pledges will not be processed.
must get 100 percent,” says owner Regier, "if we are even one dollar short we
do not receive funding.”
