Auditorium Memories Campaign - Please Take Your Seat

The historically restored 1926 Heights High Auditorium, known as the Dina Reese Evans Center for the Performing Arts, is a careful blend of traditional decorative details with new sound and lighting technology. We welcome the community in for events and performances, and now, we invite you in to place a memory in this beautiful theater.

With your contribution to the Heights Schools Foundation new Auditorium Memories Campaign, you are supporting the work of the Heights Schools Foundation, including classroom grants, arts education, scholarships for graduating seniors, maintaining our historical archives, and engaging alumni. And, your engraved message and memory will be a part of the auditorium and remain in place for years to come.

When you make your contribution, you may choose to have a 1” x 3” decorative metal plate placed on a specific seat in your honor, engraved as you designate. We’ll send you a certificate that will let you know which seat(s) your engraved plate can be found on in the auditorium. We’ll invite you to come and see the engraved plate(s) during 2018 Homecoming Weekend (October 12-14) if you have made your contribution by September 1, 2018.
