Wichita Grand Opera Sustainer's Night

Share by Email
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Location: Wilson Estate
Category: Arts / Exhibits
Wichita Grand Opera’s annual Sustainers Night is an exclusive, by-invitation-only fundraiser in support of the WGO. As WGO’s largest annual fundraiser, the event has sustained WGO’s programs over the past 15 years. Attendees will meet WGO artists and get a glimpse of what it takes in terms of personnel, finances, and logistics behind-the-scenes to produce world-class opera.

WGO’s Sustainers recognize that Wichita Grand Opera creates productions on a grand scale, yet has a budget many times smaller than other companies nationwide. At the conclusion of an entertaining and informative evening, attendees are asked to pledge financial support to the WGO over the next three or five years in one of two categories:

The backbone of Wichita Grand Opera, who pledge
$25,000 per year for a period of 5 years.

Matching Sustainers
Those who pledge a minimum of $5,000 per year
to match the pledges of the Sustainers.

If you are interested in helping secure the future of Wichita Grand Opera and would like to attend Sustainers Night 2016, please contact WGO’s Development staff at 316-262-8054.
