Possum Point Players received a donation of $5,000 from Jerry’s Fund Inc. to pay for new equipment and a reconfiguration of its current orchestra loft in Possum Hall.

Theatrical performer and Possum Point Players’ acting veteran Jerry Gietka, also president and founder of Jerry’s Fund, made the presentation recently that will allow the theater group to purchase professional equipment for a sound system that will improve orchestra members’ sound experience. The funding also will pay for installing sound deadening materials so that the audience will hear sound through the sound system alone and no longer ambient sound from the loft behind them.

Gietka and his sister administer three family related foundations, with his funding focus being the arts. In addition to funding individual projects in the arts, his foundation supports a graduate theater scholarship for $5,000 yearly at Towson University.
