Grandstaff Giver Patron Level

To celebrate MSO's 80th season, and in memory of faithful supporter David Grandstaff, current patrons may buy patron privileges for first-time patrons at half price -- only $50. Your name as the donor and their names as the recipients will appear in the printed programs for the entire 80th season. You will receive the tax benefit, and they will receive two season tickets, three newsletters, an invitation to the patron reception, and the camaraderie of interesting and wonderful people!

To be a Grandstaff Gift Giver, mail $50 and your friends' names and contact information to MSO, PO Box 113, North Manchester, IN 46962, or e-mail your friends' names and contact information to us and contribute $50 via PayPal using the "Specify other donation amount" button below.

David Grandstaff (1940-2017) helped establish and operate the family business, Grandstaff Rendering Service, in North Manchester. He was well known for his philanthropy, church and community involvement, and countless hours of volunteer work. When he accepted the Chamber of Commerce Distinguished Citizen Award, he summed up his approach to bettering the community: "God sprinkles life's path with opportunities. Many find it easier and more fun to pick up on them than stumble on them."
