Patron Reception


We’re proud to announce the 11th Annual Patron Recognition Reception will honor director Anne Drecktrah on Saturday, September 10, 2022.

This evening of food, friends, and fun brings together the community and family members to honor Anne Drecktrah. Anne is an extraordinary director and supporter of the Pump House and other arts activities and organizations in the La Crosse area. Anne will be honored with an entertaining evening of anecdotes, recollections, and memorable behind-the-scenes stories of the theater. The Patron Recognition Reception is a fundraiser for the arts where all proceeds go to the Pump House to help support the mission to provide free admission to all galleries, tuition sponsorships, and diverse arts programming for all ages. Your heart will be touched and new friends will be made at the annual Pump House Patron Recognition Reception.
