Lancaster Regional Players 1st Annual Basket Auction



On April 29, 2012, Lancaster Regional Players will hold its first annual basket raffle at the Twin District Fire Hall (4999 William Street, Lancaster). All proceeds collected from this raffle will be used to fund the scholarship and organization. The Lancaster Regional Players have been bringing theatrical productions to the Lancaster community since 1965. We are a community organization, consisting of people from all walks of life who enjoy coming together to prepare, produce and perform in plays for local audiences. We recognize the importance of those who serve outside of the spotlight in numerous roles behind the scenes of a production, and no one symbolizes this commitment more than our own Helen Kryszak. In February 2011, Helen's life was cut short by cancer. Helen joined our group back in 1972 and worked in some capacity in almost 70 productions until late 2010. She served as stage manager, stage crew member and house manager, but it is her role as Property Mistress in dozens of productions that quickly earned her the nickname "Helen of Props." Last year, Lancaster Regional Players launched a scholarship program in her memory. The Helen J. Kryszak Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior from Lancaster, Depew or St. Mary's High School that has shown similar dedication to the backstage aspects of theatre. The auction will feature various baskets with items ranging from toys and books to gift certificates. Doors open at 12 noon and the drawing will start at 2 p.m. Food and beverage will be available for purchase. Please contact Kristin Deutsch at 716-480-4547 or Marie Wendel at 716-435-4919 with any questions or to volunteer/donate.

When: Sun, Apr 29, 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
