We’re happy to announce that we surpassed our goal for the “Amplify the Hoff” Campaign, raising $3,200. We kicked off the campaign with Liz Cole’s Story Time for Grown-ups in May, which generated $500 in proceeds. Thank you to Werner Wildauer who pledged the $3,000 matching grant to help us raise funds from our community. We will now be able to purchase and install a new, reliable, and easier-to-use audio-visual system. We anticipate the new system will be in place in early August.
A huge thank you for all the generous donors who made this possible!

We’re launching our ‘Amplify the Hoff’ fundraising campaign today. You may have noticed our new stage lights, funded by the Tillamook PUD. Now we want to complement that new lighting with upgraded audio-visual equipment.
Our current audio system is a hodge-podge of used and donated equipment: the sound board has several channels missing, the small speakers we use for author presentations crackle, the large JBLs we use for our film and musical events are extremely unwieldy for our volunteers to set up.
This year’s Community Talent Showcase provided the initial funds for that project, as will the proceeds from Liz Cole’s Story-Time for Grown-ups on May 5th (Thank you Liz!!).
We’re delighted to report that if we raise $3,000 by June 18th, a generous donor will match that amount, and we’ll be able to buy and install a new audio-visual system that can meet our needs for years to come.
It’s easy to donate online here: http://hoffmanblog.org/donate using either your Paypal account or a credit card. If you prefer, simply mail a check to PO Box 678, Manzanita, OR 97130 and write “amplify” in the memo line.
Do it soon, we only have until June 18th to raise $3,000. Thank you in advance for helping us bring the arts to life!
