A seat sponsorship offers you a unique opportunity to create a prominent legacy in this world class facility by placing the name of your family, friend or business in the limelight. Your donation is commemorated with a personalized plaque that will be mounted on the chair. All donors who sponsor a seat will have their names added to the Sponsor-a-Seat recognition board in the grand lobby of the theatre.  Sponsorships are valid for five years.

Please consider making a donation to The North Shore Center Sponsor-a-Seat Program and support this special resource in our community. This is the first time that this offer is being made to the public.  It’s a wonderful opportunity to get involved!
