Why I Support Metropolis: Board Member Denise Beihoffer

January 24, 2014 § Leave a comment

My husband Tom and I have been season subscribers at Metropolis since the theater opened in 2000. At that time, we had a 3-year-old and were looking for opportunities for pre-scheduled “date nights.” Metropolis provided a great option for us to enjoy quality live theater in an intimate setting, while also supporting the local community. As we live only 8 blocks from the theater, an added bonus was our ability to walk to and from the theater and the surrounding downtown restaurants when the weather was nice.

As a parent, there is nothing more fun than seeing your child perform on stage with the many friends she made each summer!

Over the years, we have enjoyed many a show and concert at Metropolis, and when it converted to not-for-profit status, we were happy to sign on as financial supporters as well. Over time, we steadily increased our support and I became actively involved in planning various fundraising events for Metropolis, including my personal favorite, the annual Sunday Soiree. In December of 2011, I was privileged to join the Board of Directors for the organization.

My family loves living in Arlington Heights and we especially love its strong sense of community. We are very committed to supporting local business and supporting Metropolis furthers that commitment. Metropolis adds terrific value to the Arlington Heights community and I am happy to play a small role in its success. If you have not had an opportunity to visit the theater for your very own “date night,” I encourage you to do so soon!
