question-markTwentynine Palms, Ca.,- The recent letter from the Attorney General to Theatre 29 dated May 2, 2014, states the following:

“If the captioned organization contracts with a commercial fundraiser for charitable purposes or fundraising counsel, that entity must also register and file annual reports with the Registry.” >THEATRE_29_9809036239523_(1)

Would that apply to the recent San Bernardino County “Give BIG” fundraiser that required all non-profits to be in compliance prior to April 1, 2014…which Theatre 29 was not in compliance. Story>link

What about this report by Gary Daigneault dated June 24, 2010 announcing a grant hired Marina del Rey architect Tony Pleskow who produced a fundraising package? From Z107.7:

“Theatre 29 Board President Gary Daigneault showed architectural renderings of a proposed new Theatre 29 building. Marina del Rey-based architect Tony Pleskow, working under a county grant, has produced a “fundraising package” with multiple views of a low-profile 250-seat theatre building that is unlike any public building in the Morongo Basin.

(See the local news page on kcdzfm.com for some of the pictures shown by Daigneault.) Daigneault declined to state a cost for the building, nor did he specify a timeline. He did say that the Theatre will be exploring all funding options, both private and public. He also reported that RSG consultant Frank Spevacek, currently working on the General Plan Update, advises that the project be built downtown, to benefit business there.” Source>link

Darn those pesky details, eh?
