Donating to Elevator Appeal
The elevator in the building Tabard Theatre rents was red-tagged by the State of California in May, 2014 due to some issues with a pump. The landlord’s property management company became concerned with various liability issues and started the process to decommission the elevator. Thus started a seven-month journey for the landlord and—by extension— Tabard, through a labyrinth of state, federal and EPA regulations to address the property manager’s liability concerns and get the elevator up to code and running.
The elevator is now back in operation with virtually an entirely new system that meets or exceeds all of the pertinent codes.
This, however, has come at quite a cost to Tabard. The final cost for the project will top $20,000. This unexpected cost has forced us to tap into financial reserves that we must replenish to stay fiscally healthy.
During this long process many of you offered financial assistance so we are now asking you to help us with a donation of any size. Your gift will insure that in getting the elevator to go up and down, Tabard’s finances don’t go sideways (we couldn’t resist one elevator joke.)
Thank you in advance and Happy Holidays!
