Lakeland Performing Arts Association Minocqua, Wisconsin

2017 - 2018 Season

It’s not always easy to ask for help.  This is especially true when the request involves a need for money.  But that’s exactly what we need to do … ask you for your financial help.


The Lakeland Performing Arts Association (LPAA) is a non-profit organization with no paid employees or directors.  Every dollar contributed to the LPAA is

returned to the community through the acts and performances that we bring to our local stage.  Bringing these talented individuals to the Lakeland area is expensive.


And there’s more.   What is not often known is that in addition to the talent we bring to the area appearing on stage, we also arrange for many of the performing artists

 to spend time in Lakeland Union High School working with the school’s music programs and students.  This experience provides an opportunity for the student musicians to actually meet, talk and learn one on one from professionals in the music industry.  


We need your help to continue these programs.  LPAA funding is received from five sources – a donation from St. Matthias Thrift Shop; grants from the Wisconsin Arts Board and Northern Arts Counsel; our ticket sales; ads placed within the performance program and through donations from individuals such as yourself.  Our grant money is limited by State budget restrictions and increasing our revenue through an increase in ticket prices would be a burden to the seniors in our community.  This leaves us coming to you for help.


During the coming year, as you consider your charitable contributions, please give consideration to the Lakeland Performing Arts Association.  We would love to add you to our list of benefactors or as an advertiser within our performance programs.  And all donations in excess of the season ticket price are tax-deductible.
