Join Prospect's Centennial Club!
100 people donate $100 each, in celebration of 100 Years of Hello Girls
Exactly one hundred years ago, a group of groundbreaking women served valiantly on the front lines in France. They worked as bi-lingual telephone operators during the pivotal Battle of Meuse-Argonne, helping turn the tide of the war towards the cease-fire of Armistice Day (Nov. 11, 1918). After their service, they returned home to learn they were not considered veterans and fought for 60 years to achieve that recognition. Prospect's upcoming world premiere musical The Hello Girls will share the little-known story of these intrepid heroines.
Please consider a contribution of $100 to join our "Centennial Club" celebrating these women. Your gift will go directly to supporting the artists creating this production, currently in rehearsals in NYC. Use the donation link above to give online via Paypal. In the memo section, please indicate if you'd like to give a $100 membership in honor of a woman who impacted your life, and list their name in the Club Membership Roll. Click here to see the current Club Membership list - we'll update it every other day beginning Oct. 15th.
What if you want to give more than $100? We'll gratefully accept your support and place a star by your name for each Membership. We'd be thrilled to have some "four-star general members". Or you can visit our project funding page for more details on how to make gifts of other amounts either online, via check, or through a gift of stock.
Thank you for your support, and we can't wait to share this story with you and with audiences!
