Heritage Players performance, raffle to benefit Cofrin Library

GREEN BAY — The Heritage Players return to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus Wednesday,
Oct. 8, to perform a historical four-part play, “They Came to Wisconsin.”

The Heritage Players will use song and story to recreate the experiences of European immigrants who came to Wisconsin in the 1800s.

This performance touches on the decision to come, the journey, arrival and the first years in Wisconsin. The stories they share are drawn from actual recollections and original experiences of 19th century Wisconsin immigrants.

For 13 years the Heritage Players have been bringing local history to life through performance. The group presents plays and programs of local historical significance.

The Oct. 8 performance is scheduled for 7 p.m., in the University Theatre, located inside Theatre Hall, 2420 Nicolet Drive.

Friends of the Cofrin Library events are free and open to the public, but donations are accepted.

The event also marks the public launch of the Friends of the Cofrin Library fundraising raffle, with tickets available for $10 each. Prizes include more than $100 in UW-Green Bay campus dining points, a free campus parking pass, lunch for eight at Shorewood Golf Course, a high-end ergonomic office chair from KI, 10 rounds of free golf at Shorewood Golf Course, and more.

The drawing will be held at 3 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 23, in the plaza level of the David A. Cofrin Library. Participants need not be present to win. Only 1,000 tickets will be sold.

All proceeds benefit the Friends of the Cofrin Library.
