Elevator - Rise To The Top!

Want to join us in making a difference? We are raising money to benefit Richland County Performing Arts Council-RCPAC (City Auditorium). All donations received will help fulfill our dream of adding an elevator to the building.  

We were recently the recipients of a grant to help fund a large portion of the elevator project. We've dreamed about having an elevator in the building for years. The elevator will make the building ADA accessible to provide access to all three levels for everyone.

The Auditorium is an amazing historical building in Richland Center dating back to 1913.  The stage has been a place for many to share their time and talents through acting, music, dance and speeches.  It has graced local talent along with well-known professionals such as Liberace. It is our mission to continue this legacy for others to enjoy for years to come.

Any donation will help make an impact.  For donations by check, please make checks payable to RCPAC and include elevator in the memo. Checks can be mailed to RCPAC, PO BOX 188, Richland Center, WI 53581. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mick Cosgrove at [phone redacted] or Mary Jo Fortney at [phone redacted]. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to us. The show must go on!https://www.rcpac.org/ 

If you are donating on behalf of your RCHS graduating class, please include it in the memo on your check or in the comments. As of 5/24/2021:
