Once there, click on the [VOTE NOW] button.

The project is in the Education category and is named Youth Drama Club. Enter that in the search box, then vote.

Voting closes on May 17. 



A grant request submitted by the Historic Ironwood Theatre (HIT) to State Farm’s Neighborhood Assist program is among 200 causes short-listed for further consideration. 

Based on votes cast on Facebook, those 200 finalists will be reduced to 40 winners.

The voting phase for Neighborhood Assist began Monday, April 28, and closes Saturday, May 17.  

Each Facebook user will be able to vote up to 10 times per day for any of the causes that they want to support. At the end of the voting phase, the Top 40 causes will each be awarded $25,000 to complete their respective projects. 

The HIT request seeks funds to support the growth of the new Community Youth Drama Club, and family-friendly live theatre. 

If HIT’s request is selected as one of the 40 successful causes, the $25,000 will pay for acting and technology classes; production costs – scripts, props, and performance rights; curriculum development; facility rental, and more.  

Speaking about the StateFarm Neighborhood Assist grant request, HIT Managing Director Bruce Greenhill said, “the rapid growth of the club, both in the number of students involved, and the quality of the product our kids have presented tells me the time is right to make this happen.”  

Greenhill said that while the grant was submitted by HIT, the funds will be used around the community in a number of cooperative ventures. 

“The Ironwood Carnegie Library took the initiative to start the club, and we at HIT were delighted to lend our support,” Greenhill said. “Our friends at Theatre North are excited to join the library in supporting the club, and we hope to engage students at GCC, too.”
