"I couldn't be more grateful and appreciative of the help I got from the Valentine Fund, it feels so amazing to be a part of such a welcoming and helpful community. When I was so down on my luck it felt incredible to get such gracious help from the community I have been a part of for so long. Thank you, members of PATA, I'll never forget this."  

Give back to Portland theatre. Donate to the Valentine Fund.
