FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


ANNOUNCING THE FORMATION OF ALLEGANY ALLIED ARTS, INC., AND INITIAL ORGANIZING MEETING

The principals and founders of Allegany Allied Arts, Inc., are pleased to announce the formation of a new local nonprofit arts organization. Headquartered in Cumberland, Maryland, Allegany Allied Arts is dedicated to staging and supporting arts-related events and productions.

The mission of Allegany Allied Arts, Inc., is fundraising to facilitate arts exhibition, performance, and education. It is our purpose to stage and support arts related events and productions for public benefit by putting the entertainment back in arts and entertainment, and for the benefit of our community, staff, and volunteers by exposure to and involvement in allied arts entertainment and education.

At formation, our officers and board shall be comprised of David Rorabaugh as President, Eve Soliz as Treasurer, and Wayne Wolters as Secretary.

David Rorabaugh is a retired IT management professional with more than 20 years of experience in military, government contract, legal, and corporate environments. Most recently, he has served as Cinema Director, Executive Director, and Vice President of the New Embassy Theatre, Inc., in Cumberland, Maryland.

Eve Soliz is Draftsman turned costume designer and stage manger with over 15 years experience working in Montgomery, Frederick, Washington, and Allegany Counties. She has previously served as a member of the Board of Directors of the New Embassy Theatre, Inc., in Cumberland, Maryland.

Wayne Wolters is a Licensed Cosmetologist and a makeup artist who has an emphasis in special effects. He also has extensive experience in stage production and set design, and has previously served as Volunteer Coordinator for the New Embassy Theatre, Inc., in Cumberland, Maryland.

We are scheduled to hold our initial public organizing meeting on Friday, April 25. Join us for a meet-and-greet — who we are, what we’re about, what plans we have (that we can talk about), and how you can help us bring more arts and entertainment events to Allegany County. The meeting will be held from 1:00-2:00pm in the Community Room at The Allegany Arts Council, 9 N. Centre Street, Cumberland, Maryland 21502. We expect to serve wine, other non-alcoholic beverages, and light refreshments. This meeting is free, and open to the public. (Must be 21+ for alcohol.)

Beginning later in 2014, we expect to begin announcing and promoting a schedule of events at a variety of local venues.

The incorporators of Allegany Allied Arts, Inc., would like to thank Michael Hartman for providing the funds used to underwrite our incorporation.
