The Newburgh Arts Commission is working hard to raise money for their big amphitheater project downtown, and you can help with their Buy-a-Brick fundraiser! 

An amphitheater and pavilion has been in the plan for Downtown Newburgh for years, and at the rate which Downtown Newburgh is growing now is the time to put that plan into action. Now the Newburgh Arts Commission is working to raise money.

They have a pretty lofty goal of raising $250,000 which sounds pretty high, but they've already raised half of it! Once they raise the next $175,000 they will be able to ask for a matching grant, and get this pavilion finally built!

I talked with Carol from the Newburgh Arts Commission today, and she shared all of the great things that would come with an amphitheater, everything from beautiful weddings (could you imagine how pretty that would be with the river behind you?!) to sunrise church services, of course live entertainment and much more!

You can help by purchasing a brick for $75 and you can have your name or a loved ones name put on it forever!

If you haven't seen it yet, here's the plans for the upcoming pavilion! How cool is this?!
