In it's 90 years, the Stanley attracted acts like Bing Crosby and Bon Jovi. The Executive Director for the Stanley, Jerry Kraus said it's the community that keeps the place going. ""what we're really celebrating it closed a few times back in the 70'sbut community minded groups helped keep it open. "There were a few times in the 70's and 80's where the theatre almost closed down, but community minded groups came in and said, we're going to keep it open, and they did raise money and they did raise funds," said Kraus.

All money from the event will go toward the Stanley for upgrades.
