Last week I started my very first internship at Shea’s Performing Arts Center. So far, I have really enjoyed it! I am in the development department, so my job is to help raise money for the theatre, with my main focus being on the Black Tie Gala coming up this spring.

My first day I got a tour of the building, which is continuously being restored in order to keep the original history and character that comes along with the theatre. It is a huge building so it has been fun to walk around and look at how beautiful everything is.

I have been mainly working on a mailing list to ask for donations for this years auction that will take place at the gala, and with over 200 letters to mail out, it has taken up a lot of my time. I finished that up yesterday so I am excited to see what they have me do next!
