Trash to Treasure 2015

t-t logoMonongalia Arts Center (MAC)’s largest annual fundraiser, Trash to Treasure, will begin on Sept. 19. MAC will continue to accept tax-deductible item donations to the fundraiser through Sept. 18.


“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”

MAC’s largest annual fundraiser, the Trash to Treasure Sale is based on this idiom. With everything ranging from clothing, artwork, and kitchen supplies to books, music, and furniture, MAC’s Trash to Treasure Sale – now in its fourth year – has become a local tradition.  Providing arts supporters with the opportunity to clean out the clutter in their homes, MAC relies on its generous patrons to donate their household “trash” to let MAC turn it into “treasure.”

MACmusic: Mother Brown Plays for Nepal

Mother Brown MorgantownOn Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 8 pm, Monongalia Arts Center (MAC) will host MACmusic: Mother Brown Plays for Nepal, a concert to benefit Oxfam America’s Nepal Earthquake Relief and Recovery Fund, in the Tanner Theatre. The concert has a $10 suggested minimum donation, all proceeds of which will go directly to Oxfam’s fund for Nepal.

The rock group – featuring Aaron Baughman and Erik Yoder on electric guitar, Jack Falbo on bass guitar, and Tony Vaglienti on drums – expresses, “We really want to support Oxfam in their aid to the people of Nepal after the tragic earthquake and thought playing a show in support would be fun for all.”

Erik Yoder, one of Mother Brown’s electric guitarists, adds, “I have had family members doing aid work in Nepal before, so this seemed right to be able to help out in some small way.”

On April 25, a devastating earthquake struck Nepal. To date, more than 7,500 have lost their lives, and the death toll is still climbing. According to Oxfam America – a global organization working to right the wrongs of poverty, hunger, and injustice – Oxfam aid workers are on the ground, providing clean water, latrines, and emergency shelter to people who can’t return to their damaged homes.

Yoder says about Oxfam America’s work, “Even when we cannot be on the ground, we can facilitate their work. Please donate whatever you can, by attending our benefit concert or by visiting Oxfam America’s website.”

Donations to Oxfam America’s Nepal Earthquake Relief and Recovery Fund are currently being accepted online here.

Aaron Baughman, an electric guitarist for Mother Brown, is a self-taught guitarist, songwriter, and musician with nearly 30 years of experience.

Jack Falbo, bass guitarist for Mother Brown, has been a musician for 30 years. He is from Follansbee, WV and now resides in Fairmont, WV. He started playing in the early 80s and has played many genres of music.

Tony Vaglienti, Mother Brown’s drummer, is a seasoned percussionist with nearly 30 years playing with extensive live stage experience. Vaglienti loves all genres but partial to classic & hard rock.

Erik Yoder, an electric guitarist for Mother Brown, has been playing music since high school. He lives in Morgantown and enjoys reading, playing Magic the Gathering and spending time with loved ones.

Thank You from the MACplayers

red imageThank you to everyone who contributed toward RED’s journey to the Southeastern Theatre Conference festival earlier this month. Without your support and the Greater Morgantown Convention & Visitors Bureau's sponsorship, this huge step for West Virginia community theatre would not have been possible. Although RED’s journey has ended, it has been a meaningful experience for all involved, and it was truly an honor for the MACplayers to represent Morgantown and the state of West Virginia.
