Noble Fool Theatricals (4051 E. Main St., St. Charles, IL; 630-443-0438) team up with iGive to make donating to its organization easier. In a letter sent to their subscriber list and friends, Noble Fool reached out today, requesting that everyone pitch in and donate $25. "Your gift has life-enhancing consequences," they exclaimed and listed ten cute a la "Letterman" reasons why everyone should pitch in. Their goal is to raise $3,125 through this program or 125 individual $25 donations.

"Tickets sales only take up of portion of what it takes to run Noble Fool," said Audra Sybert, Production Manager. We participate in a number of fundraising endeavors and look for corporate sponsorships as well.
