The Sunrise Theatre Foundation raises funds on a continuing basis in order to carry out its mission. The Sunrise Theatre buses hundreds of children to the theatre annually from schools all over the Treasure Coast so that children can be exposed to the arts. It is essential that children continue to be exposed to the performing arts for education, fun and for stimulating their imaginations. The Foundation sponsors the theatre’s efforts by annually funding this busing campaign.

The Foundation also sponsors the Missoula Summer Camp held each summer on the Sunrise Theatre’s stage.  Each week of the camp children learn a play and then present the play at the end of the week.  Hundreds of children participate either onstage or behind the scenes creating sets or learning the technical end.  However they participate, the children enjoy an exceptional experience and go forward with real working knowledge of the theatre.

In order to raise the necessary funds to present these activities, the Foundation holds several fundraising events. The Foundation presents the annual Cattleman’s Dance in February each year at the spectacular Adams Ranch. With live music and dancing, great barbecue and a great evening with friends old and new, the Cattleman’s Dance is a can’t-miss event. Make sure you buy your tickets early as this event is sure to sell out.

Additionally, the Foundation holds an annual Golf Tournament where our participants play in a fun and challenging environment. There are many ways to support the Foundation at this event, including different levels of sponsorship.  There is always an exciting live and silent auction.

The Foundation has kicked off its “Pave the Way for Sunrise Kids” Brick Campaign on October 7, 2016. For $150.00, a brick can be purchased at the front entrance to the theatre for a lasting expression of your commitment to the theatre and the Foundation. Please purchase one today!!

These are just a few of the events the Foundation holds to raise money.  If you would like to support the Foundation in other ways, we accept checks made out to the Sunrise Theatre Foundation and mailed to the Sunrise Theatre Foundation, 117 S. 2nd Street, Ft. Pierce, FL 34950.  Please also consider including us in your estate plans.  Consult with your financial planner for ways to bequest a donation.
