Custard shop joins push for arts center

WEST DUNDEE – Area residents can have their custard and support the arts, too, at Van’s Frozen Custard, 300 Main St. in Carpentersville.

From noon to 9 p.m. Sunday, the custard shop will donate all proceeds to the proposed West Dundee Fox Performing Arts Center.

This summer, Friends of the Fox, made up of local business leaders, neighbors, thespians, musicians and arts patrons, organized to meet the village’s request to demonstrate local support for the creation of a state-of-the-art, 258-seat performing arts facility.

To date, Friends of the Fox has secured more than $100,000 in pledges and donations, plus hundreds of petition signatures toward the village of West Dundee’s deadline of Aug. 12.

The proposed site for the performing arts center is the former Ziegler Ace Hardware building at 118 S. First St., West Dundee.

Besides offering semi-equity and community theater productions, The Fox would be available to host local dance companies, choir and chamber programs, K-12 educational theater and other art showcases.

For information, an online petition, tickets to the Celebrate the Arts event on Aug. 10 or to pledge support, visit www.FoxArtsCenter.com.
