Make a Gift

Support from individual Friends of the Hett members make our season possible (and make each season better than the previous one)! Friends of the Hett membership begins at $50.  In addition to making our programs possible, Friends of the Hett are entitled to a number of benefits and perks including ticket exchange privileges and advance ticket purchase opportunities.

Keep in mind the additional advantages of the Star Donor level when making your decision. Star Donors receive 12 tickets to be used at any show you wish – you decide which shows and how many seats. Naturally, as a Star Donor, you will be the first to select a seat (and tickets to free shows don’t count toward your allotted 12) as well as partake in all of the other benefits like VIP invitations and advance ticket purchases.


If, over the past six years, you’ve found yourself inspired, transported or entertained by some of the incredible artists presented on the Hett’s stage, then I hope that you will take a moment to support our mission. Help us to keep McKendree Presents thriving for years to come!

To make a gift please call Peter Palermo at 618-537-6097.
