Those wishing to participate should text “Culture” to 74121 or visit qtego.net/culture to make their gift.
“New donors only need to give $25, and people who have already given should give $25 more on top of their current gift,” Perry explained.
Money raised provides operating support grants to a list of local cultural organizations, including the Dayton Art Institute, Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, Dayton Performing Arts Alliance, The Human Race Theatre Company and Muse Machine.
