Shopping List

“I started donating to Lifeline in response to a flyer at a KidSeries show that asked, ‘Can you buy a chicken a costume for $30?’ At the time, a blouse for work cost me $50, so I thought I could manage to buy a chicken a costume for less than it cost me to dress myself.”
     —Nona Flores, Lifeline Subscriber since 2000, donor since 2006

Nona first gave to Lifeline by underwriting the cost of a single costume in one of our KidSeries shows. Six years later, Nona sponsors each of our KidSeries productions through the Shopping List. The multitude of costumes she has sponsored have entertained audiences of all ages. You, too, can provide fundamental items such as properties, scenery, costumes, or even office supplies by sponsoring an item from our Shopping List.

Note that for any show-specific items you chose to sponsor, you will receive recognition of your sponsorship in the show’s program.

To sponsor an item on our Shopping List, please contact Allison Cain, Managing Director, at 773.761.4477 or allison@lifelinetheatre.com.
