December 4 Pork Chop Fundraiser to Benefit Astra Renovations

As an endcap to Jasper’s O’Tannenbaum Days, we’ll be holding a pork chop dinner fundraiser on Sunday, December 4.  Each to-go meal will include a 10 ounce bacon wrapped pork chop, a baked potato, creamy cole slaw, and Amish bread, and will be available for pickup at the Matrix Integration parking lot between the hours of 12 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. (eastern).

The meals are being prepared by Ferdinand Processing, are $15 per, and available for purchase in advance directly via this link, by phoning 812-566-1935, or by contacting a member of our board of directors.  All net proceeds will benefit our ongoing effort to raise much needed funds to renovate the historic Astra Theatre.

Next Act, Inc., learned late in the summer of 2016 that the Astra had been selected to receive $400,000 in historic preservation funding from the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs, most of which will go toward repair and replacement of the building’s major infrastructure.  Funds raised from any of the Astra’s upcoming events, including this pork chop fundraiser, will go toward interior renovations that will include, but aren’t limited to: opening the balcony, installing an accessible first floor restroom, expanding the concessions area, and the purchase of new audio/video technology.  For more information about Next Act, Inc., and the historic Astra Theatre, please visit
