24th Annual Point Richmond Memorial Day Garage Sale

May 29, 2017, 9:00-4:00

This is the granddaddy of all garage sales! The annual Memorial Day Garage Sale involves the entire Point Richmond community and is one of the Masquers’ great fundraisers. In addition to the Masquers’ sale in front of the theatre, Point Richmond residents sign up to have their own sales and donate 10% of their proceeds to the theatre.

Looking for a vintage leather jacket?  A dremel tool?  An 8 x 10 framed photo of Eartha Kitt?  You’ll find them at the Point on Memorial Day.

When it’s time to take a break, Act II Improv will entertain in Indian Statue Park across from the Playhouse. There will be a Pancake Breakfast at the Methodist church (details below).

Don’t miss this signature Point Richmond event!  Not only will you find something you need/love/want, you’ll be contributing to a great cause – The Masquers.  See you on Memorial Day!

Dear Friends, Patrons, and Loyal Supporters

We want to update you on the progress of our plans to reopen Masquers Playhouse.

We are pleased to announce the formation of the Masquers Moving Forward Committee comprising Masquers Board of Directors, Theater Administrative Staff, Members and Community Supporters who champion our goal to reopen Masquers Playhouse. Some members of our board of directors and administrative staff have recently moved on to other projects.  We thank them for their tireless efforts and hard work over the years, guiding us through the myriad challenges and sharing all the joys of keeping community theater alive and affordable in Point Richmond.  We wish them well.

Our goal is to reopen the theater by completing a substantial seismic reinforcement of our brick building and repairing the cracked beam, complying with ADA mandated requirements, improving our fire exits, and upgrading our electrical systems.

We have hired a capital campaign fundraising consultant who is now working with us on a much-needed feasibility study.  This will more clearly define our major fundraising goals and guide our efforts in the months to come.

In the meantime, we continue to move forward our grassroots fundraising with events, including the annual Memorial Day Garage Sale on May 29, Masquers Night Out at Panera Bread in Pinole on April 19, a benefit performance of The Elephant Man at Altarena Playhouse on May 18, and staged readings of An Ideal Husband at Pinole Community Players in August.  Events will be posted on our website and we will send info out via our email alerts and postings to our Facebook page.

To those of you who have been supportive throughout this process, we give you a standing ovation and say “THANK YOU!”  Yet we have more hard work ahead.  We ask you to continue to keep Masquers Playhouse in your regular donations.  Every bit helps us realize our goal of raising the curtains once again.

We encourage you to check in on our website, www.Masquers.org, to learn how you can continue to support Masquers Playhouse, either through attendance at an event, donating time or money, or getting updates on the progress of our rebuilding efforts.

From the Masquers Moving Forward Committee, our best regards.
