Ossie Davis Theater “Name-a-Seat” Campaign Details

The Ossie Davis Theater’s new layout includes 138 individual seats aligned in 10 rows; 124 seats are available for naming.  Supporters of the Library and the arts who donate $300 per seat to be “named” in the fifth through 10th rows will be recognized with a nameplate on each seat “purchased.” A donation of $1,000 allows a donor to name one of 38 premium seats in the second through fourth rows.

Donors may select the message they wish to put on the nameplate, up to three lines of 27 characters each.

If you would like to speak to a Board member before selecting a seat, or to pay by check, contact Betsy Kravitz, co-chair of the NRPL Foundation fundraising committee at bmk926@aol.com or call the Foundation at 914-632-7878, ext. 1600.

Brochures with seat-naming order forms that detail the fundraiser are available at the New Rochelle Public Library, One Library Plaza, New Rochelle, NY 10801.
