SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Last Wednesday, Aug. 24, automotive parts manufacturer Nemak gifted a $1,000 check to SAFE’s Southern Dance and Performing Arts Company (SDPAC).
Hitting the $1,000 mark means that Nemak will be a Silver-level sponsor for SDPAC’s 2022-23 theatre season.
The money will go towards improving the quality of the three productions planned for the upcoming season which include The Hunchback of Notre Dame set for October, The Wizard of Oz in February of next year, and Our Town, the final show in July 2023.
Nemak’s senior HR operations specialist John Parrish presented the check to SAFE’s (Sylacauga Alliance for Family Enhancement) Amy McDonald and program manager Mary Love Hendrickson.
“This sponsorship helps to make it possible for area students to attend the school shows at a discounted ticket price,” according to McDonald. “We are grateful for our community partners like Nemak. Without sponsors, the SAFE’s Southern Dance and Performing Arts Company theatre season would not be possible.”
In total, over 4,500 individuals attended last year’s productions.
SDPAC, as a program of SAFE, is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating a solid and focused experience for each student – on and off stage – providing unique performing arts programs.
