Call for Board Members

Posted on

The Magic Moments Board of Directors is losing several valuable members after many years of service and dedication to the board running the business side of the organization. We need a full board to be an effective board so we are asking for volunteers. If you would like to join a family that is committed to focusing on the abilities of all people, please consider attending our next meeting on May 9 at Waterstone Community Church.

Qualifications: Board members must be able to assist with fundraising and marketing efforts, seek out funding opportunities, read and approve budgets and show a duty of care to the organization. A readiness to learn and protect the mission and values of the members and the production as well as good communication skills are a must. Board members must be proficient using a computer and like media, as the majority of communication is driven via cloud based applications. Previous board experience and a background in business are huge pluses. Board is separate from the production and theater experience, although helpful, is not a requirement.

Commitment: Must be able to commit to attend one board meeting per month as well as work on a committee with projects outside meetings. Must be available during rehearsals and show week in March to stay in touch with the members and assist with committee duties. We are a working board and no set financial commitment is required, but support in the way of attendance and sponsorship is needed.

Please contact Kamala Quintana at: kamala.magicmoments@gmail.com or you may call for more information at 303-607-7555.

Thank you

Colorado Gives Day 2017

Posted on

Magic Moments is pleased to announce that Colorado Gives Day is coming up on December 5!

We also want to thank you for your generous support during Colorado Gives Day 2016. Because of your support, MM received enough funding from last year to purchase 30 much-needed microphones. After years of scrounging around for working microphones, we had the equipment we needed to ensure a smoother, more professional musical production in 2017.

For 35 years, Magic Moments has been welcoming people of all ages and abilities to the cast and crew of our annual musical production. We work with our actors with special needs and crew members to make sure they’re ready and confident as they take the stage. Our goal this year is to raise funds to replace outdated rehearsal and production equipment – laptops, sound system, and wireless microphones.
