the project

The neighborhood is building a local amphitheater to support the arts in the community.  The amphitheater will serve the community on various events which will leave up to our annual street festival featuring local artists.  The amphitheater will be free to the community and will be equip with state of the art sound system, lighting, outdoor grill kitchen and full service herb garden.  The community is surrounded about people who have talent and no place to showcase and plus elderly people that cannot afford special herbs for their food. Therefore this amphitheater will be able to accommodate all the needs for the community.

the steps

Organizing various partners to support with supplies. Working by doing with neighbors. Organizing various fundraising activities,

why we're doing it

Something needs to be done to bridge communities together and beautify the neighborhood with arts, music and fresh herbs.  The amphitheater will be built with natural supplies and substain with natural resources such as rain, solar, and wind.

The Home Depot will donate materials, volunteers, and supplies to building the amphitheater.  The budget will pay for other supplies, contractors, permits and laborers.  Baptist Memorial Health Care will donate sponsorship on a monthly basis for the upkeep of the amphitheater.
