Integrys Energy Services: Another way you can support FOTB
 
Integrys Energy Services and the Dickinson Area Partnership have developed a gas choice offering for any current natural gas customers in good account standing with either Consumers Energy or MichCon (DTE).  By selecting Integrys as your alternative supplier for natural gas through the Michigan Gas Customer Choice program, you will receive a pre-negotiated discounted rate on your natural gas use.  This discounted rate is below Integrys’ standard rate, which has historically measured favorably against comparable utility rates. 
 
Upon your enrollment, you will be a participant in the Integrys gas customer choice program.  For every enrollee who enrolls for a 12-month term, Integrys will donate $25 to the Friends of the Braumart designated by you!  To sign up or for more information, please contact Teresa Louys at 906-396-4148, or visit the enrollment site at www.integrysenergy.com/dap.
 
Request for Donations:
 
We are making great progress towards our current goal of $75,000.  Thanks to our Local Live concert on March 31, our concession sales at the Main Street Service Auction on April 28, the proceeds from the Bob Milne Ragtime Boogie-Woogie Piano Concert on June 7, grants, and the generous donations of supporters like you, we have raised over $14,500!
 
The $75,000 we raise will help guide the development of the future Braumart Arts Center by paying for the Market Feasibility Study and the Architectural/Engineering/Structural Analysis with the Milwaukee firm of Engberg Anderson, and for the services of Panas Linzy & Partners, fundraising and marketing consultants.  If you haven’t already done so, please make a donation for our Theater Redevelopment Feasibility Study.  Thank you for your continued support!
