Each year, The 5th Avenue Theatre partners with the Seattle Times to contribute to the Fund for the Needy. Now in its 37th year, the annual Seattle Times Fund for the Needy campaign raises funds to support 12 local non-profit organizations that help children, families and seniors in our community get through times of crisis. Since the Fund launched in 1979, it has raised more than $19 million in donations from generous Seattle Times readers. Last year, the Seattle Times broke the record for the most donations received since its inception, generating more than $1.4 million for fund recipients.
At last year's benefit performance of The Sound of Music, 5th Avenue audiences raised $33,100 for the Fund. This year's benefit occured on the Wednesday, November 23 performance of Disney's The Little Mermaid. $20 of each ticket sold will be donated to the Fund, which distributes 100% of proceeds to local non-profits.
