The Sleepy Hollow Theater has been entertaining Bismarck-Mandan, ND, residents underneath the summer stars for 25 years. This year, the stage got a little brighter for the theater company that could. Thanks to a donation from Basin Electric’s Charitable Giving Program, Sleepy Hollow installed new light towers.
The Friday, July 31 performance was deemed Basin Electric night and the new towers were christened with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Representing Basin Electric was Gavin McCollum, engineering services director and a long-time volunteer for Sleepy Hollow. McCollum and his wife Valerie were named this year’s honorary chair couple, in recognition of their continue support of the summer theater over McCollum’s 12-year volunteer history with the non-profit.
Prior to the first use of the light towers, Basin Electric Safety Coordinator Auston Biles trained the student-staff on the use of the safety equipment, including harnesses and retractable lanyards, donated to Sleep Hollow.
