Be A Part of History

Buy-A-Brick

Feb 01, 2021-Apr 30, 2021

BE A PART OF HISTORY.

Join us by leaving your mark (literally!) with our Buy-A-Brick Campaign!

Aurora Theatre is excited to offer you the opportunity to purchase a personalized engraved brick to be set outside the new Lawrenceville Performing Arts Center. Upon opening, we anticipate over 100,000 visitors walking through this space each year.

As a member the Aurora family, you are invited to leave a lasting and unchanging legacy of your own by personalizing a brick.

Engraved bricks will be installed in the sidewalk areas leading to the Main Entry along North Clayton and East Pike Street, as well as the new Courtyard space.

Bricks are available in three sizes: 

  
  • V.I.P. LEVEL – 16 inches x 16 inches – up to 12 lines of text – starting at $1,000
    • Want to add color? For an additional $200 at this level, you can add a full-color logo. Perfect for businesses: your sponsor recognition will be a permanent reminder of your company’s support to the Aurora Theatre.
  • SUPPORTERS LEVEL – 8 inches x 8 inches – up to 6 lines of text – starting at $500
  • FRIENDS & FAMILY LEVEL – 8 inches x 4 inches – up to 3 lines of text –  starting at $250 
  • Ordering a brick is as easy as 1-2-4! Click on the link, enter your contact information, choose a brick, write out your engraving, and choose your payment method.
  • Bricks can be engraved with names, short sayings, memorial commemorations, and select symbols. This is an opportunity to not only give back to your Aurora Theatre, but to create something special that you, your children, or even your grandchildren will be able to appreciate while visiting the campus for years to come.
  • Purchasing a brick not only ensures your lasting legacy at the Aurora, but it directly benefits programming for our entire greater Gwinnett community.

Make your gift by April 30, 2021 to ensure your spot ahead of the Summer 2021 Grand Opening!

A Million Dreams for a Million People!
