SHELBY, NC — An amazing plan that won’t cost you a cent, yet you can be a major factor in the success of the restoration of this amazing art deco theater. The Rogers Theater once sat 650 people to view everything from “Gone With The Wind” to “Grease”.

The theater has sat empty for 25 years, and now has a chance at a rebirth with your help. The theater is in a competition for a $250,000.00 grant from the Pepsi Co. It all depends on who gets the most votes before the end of April. All you need to do is to log on to www.refresheverything.com/rogerstheater, sign in, then vote for The Rogers. Remember, you must sign in BEFORE you vote or your vote won’t count. You can vote once a day, everyday during April. You can also vote for other good causes, but please only vote for The Rogers Theater in the $250k category. Vote for whoever you like in the other cash categories, and remember to vote everyday during April.

You can also leave your contact info by email at and we’ll keep you posted on our restoration progress. Please log on to the site and give the Rogers Theater the chance it deserves.
