Raid the Roof!

We need a new roof and we need your help!

The Ohnward Fine Arts Center is now in it's 11th season and it is now time to replace the roof on the entire building.  I know this does not seem like a glamorous fundraiser, but it must be done!

The Ohnward Fine Arts Center is a non-profit organization. We receive no funding from the city of from tax dollars. We rely on the generous donations of our business partners and patrons to meet many of our expenses. As a 501(c)(3) organization, all donations to Ohnward are tax-deductible. We are deeply grateful to all those who have given so generously in the past, strengthening Ohnward and ensuring its vitality in this wonderful community.

Our Next Event: The Four Preps Holiday Show

Saturday, November 25 at 7:00 PM

Event Image

It's the most wonderful time of the year.

The songs of the hit pop-harmony ensemble The Four Preps stir up a memory or two hits like "26 Miles (Santa Catalina)", "Big Man," "Down By the Station," and "Dreamy Eyes" memories as dreamy and warm as an old-time Christmas morn.

The Four Preps will certainly share such era-favorites during their Christmas Show, which sparkles bright with more than a dozen traditional favorites like "O Come All Ye Faithful," "The First Noel," "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear," "Hark The Herald," "Winter Wonderland" & other holiday classics.

Now, in their 56th year of performance, The Four Preps are still fronted by original lead singer Bruce Belland, who is joined by the well-matched vocal force of Bob Duncan (formerly of the Diamonds), Michael Redman & Skip Taylor (from the Crew Cuts).

Their Christmas Show is a harmonious gift that's cheery and bright, delivered with an elegance and style that reminds us this truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

      $25(in advance) $30(at the door)
