Jon Hamm joined iHeartRadio Broadway to chat about his involvement with the Small Professional Theater Sustainment Fund that was developed to help support St. Louis performing arts venues like the St. Louis Actors Studio during the COVID-19 shutdown. Due to the pandemic, small businesses are closing all over the world and the Arts have been hit even harder since federal funding does not support performing arts venues.
During the interview with Jon, iHeartRadio Broadway was pleased to announce that Mercedes-Benz (our founding Partner) recently donated $35,000 to the Sustainment Fund in honor of working with Jon as their spokesperson.
As part of the fund, a contest was put together that features artists who began their careers or consider themselves St. Louis natives. St. Louis natives that are taking part in the virtual contest include: Jon Hamm, Sterling K. Brown, Beau Willimon, Sam McMurray, Corey Finley, and Neil LaBute. For each $75 donation, you name will be placed into a hat for 50 chances to win a virtual hangout with on of these artists. To donate to the Small Professional theater Sustainment Fund and for your chance to win, please visit: www.Stlas.org.
