Name your price for a night at the Theatre

BECKLEY – Locals looking for entertainment have the power to name their price for the next three Wednesdays.

Theatre West Virginia is offering up residents of Raleigh County and the surrounding area the chance to donate whatever they feel is right.

Whether it's $5 or $500, Theatre West Virginia will allow you to see their showing of Hatfield’s and McCoy’s this Wednesday and the next two Wednesday’s as part of their "Pay What You Wish Wednesday" fundraiser.

Half of all the money will go to local charities including Just for Kids, Hospice, and the Raleigh County Humane Society.

“We've had volunteers and investors of time and money come in to help Southern West Virginia from right here in Southern West Virginia,” says organizer Scott Hill, “So we need to step up and do something for other folks, other organizations, it's just not about the Theatre, it's about the community.”

Hill says this evolved from their canned food drives the Theatre had done in the past, and they just wanted to try something different.
