Arcada Theatre Staff Support

This GoFundMe Page has been created to help out some folks who are very near and dear to all of us - the good people of the Arcada Theatre.

The Arcada Theatre and all of the other Onesti Entertainment venues are like a second home for everyone, but what makes them a home is all of the people that are involved. Us, the fans and patrons, the volunteers, all of the O Shows Entertainment and staff, and Ron himself.

Because of unforeseen circumstances and having to take the safety precautions that have occurred, 90% of the staff is out of work. All the venues have been forced to shut down. It is a tragic turn for a place that has affected so many people over the years.

Ron's love for music and his sincere concern for his customers and their families continues to stay alive by livestreaming great entertainment that we all know and love, 7 days a week. It is his way of giving back to those who have supported live music all these years.

We are doing this as fans of the Arcada. It has meant so much for all of us over the past 15 years since Ron, Rich, and their staff came to St. Charles. We want to do as much as we can so that the Theatre can re-open and offer the same great shows it always has. If you want to see it stay open, help us here.

Long live music! Long live the Arcada! 
Watch the livestream every night at 7:30pm!

Thank you!

Cheryl and Amara
