Due to the 2020 Covid-19 shutdown, with no income from ticket sales, GCB suffered an operating loss of nearly $35,000. In order for us to continue producing The Nutcracker and sponsoring our signature school show — which is entirely free for 500 children every year — we need you to make a donation. We need you to invite your friends and family to make a donation. We need hospitals, banks, realtors, car dealers, medical professionals, hotels, outfitters, law offices, accounting firms, funeral homes, property managers, and insurance companies to make a donation. We need Nutcracker parents to identify potential new donors or join GCB’s Fundraising Committee. Thank you for helping us keep the tradition alive!

Other Ways to Give

If you are not in a position to make a donation, there are other fun and meaningful ways to make a difference! We invite you to shop, volunteer and participate in our Community Partner events — every dollar really adds up, and we are truly, deeply, profoundly grateful for everyone’s continued support. You can donate online through our Store, or the old-fashioned way (by mailing a check).
