Admission is free. In lieu of tickets, viewers will be invited to donate to the HET's Auditorium Improvement Fund.
The HMHS Auditorium Improvement Fund is the latest fundraising initiative of the HET. The Haddonfield Educational Trust is a qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit entity that is dedicated to enhancing the educational excellence of the Haddonfield School District. The HET solicits, receives and manages funds that benefit Haddonfield Schools. In recent years, the HET has supported teacher grants, beautification of the high school campus, construction of playgrounds, and more. Additionally, the HET will distribute more than $120,000 in scholarships to graduates of the HMHS Class of 2020.
The HMHS Auditorium Improvement Fund will support much needed improvements to the technical (sound and lighting systems) and physical (seating and staging) elements that high school performers rely on to produce high-quality events. Incoming Superintendent Chuck Klaus said "The district truly appreciates the HET's support of the auditorium fundraising initiative. This important space provides our students a place to develop and their passion for the arts and share this passion with our community." HMHS Drama Club Director Matt DiDonato said "The students are really happy that the HET chose the auditorium as their next beneficiary. It reinforces the notion that the art created in this special space is valued by the community."
"Places! At Home" is the first of two fundraisers that the HET has planned to support the Auditorium Improvement Fund. A golf tournament is being planned for August 17, 2020 at Tavistock Country Club.
