The Chilton Hospital Auxiliary raised $10,490 from its benefit performance of the award-winning musical “A Chorus Line.” Proceeds from the sold-out show, which took place at The Barn Theatre in Montville on Thursday, May 30, will benefit the Cancer Center at Chilton. This event was underwritten by Boiling Springs Savings Bank.
“This year’s Theatre Night event raised nearly $2,000 more than the 2012 fundraiser and $3,000 more than the previous year,” said Chilton Hospital Auxiliary Vice President and Event Chairwoman MaryAnn Morgan. “The public is becoming increasingly aware about this fun event that goes to a great cause, and I’m so proud to be part of such a compassionate community.”
