Over 1,000 attendees helped the Kewaunee Young People’s Theater raise thousands of dollars for area organizations. Final totals have not been calculated from last weekend’s Hooray for Hollywood shows, but it is estimated that over $40,000 was raised to support projects in Kewaunee County, ranging from scholarships for high school students to much needed equipment for the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department and the Algoma Fire and Rescue Department. Kevin Dax says the feedback is great from this year’s two-and-a-half hour shows.
Dax says the committee in charge of organizing the weekend slate of shows usually takes about a week off before starting to plan next year’s Hooray for Hollywood, which will take place February 15-17, 2019.
