Multiple arts and teen programs will benefit thanks to a major donation from Janss Marketplace, which will be presented during a ceremony tomorrow, Friday, November 19 at noon at Janss Marketplace, located at 215 North Moorpark Road in Thousand Oaks.
The public is invited to attend the ceremony with leaders and families served through the Conejo Recreation and Park District and the Arts Council of the Conejo Valley. Janss Marketplace will present a $10,000 donation, which the center raised in just nine days from proceeds during the October Reign of Terror Haunted House. The Reign of Terror not only ranked as one of the top 10 Haunted Houses in the U.S., but also provided the center with the opportunity to donate much needed funds to the organizations.
The Young Artists Ensemble’s Conejo Theatre for Everyone program provides opportunity for youth to perform an annual fully-produced play or musical that draws high community attendance. The donation from Janss Marketplace will provide financial aid for low income participants and help fund performance expenses
The Thousand Oaks Teen Center is operated through the cooperative efforts of the Conejo Recreation and Park District and the City of Thousand Oaks. The program benefits teens by providing a full service activity center and recreational programs. The Janss Marketplace donation will help fund programs and purchase computer and sports equipment.
