(Tuscaloosa, Ala.) Few things define the South as well as bar-b-que and football, and The Arts Council would like to bring the food and festivity to your party this autumn through its Benefit Giveaway. For only $15 per ticket, you buy a chance to win a $1,000 catering package from Tuscaloosa’s Full Moon Bar-B-Que. The proceeds from the giveaway will go directly to The Arts Council’s general fund.

Tickets will be sold at the Bama Theatre’s Bama Art Movie Series on September 8 and 15 with sales closing on Sunday, September 27, 2015. Purchases can also be made online at bamatheatre.org/buytickets or in person at The Arts Council office, located on the 2nd floor of the PARA Building, adjacent to the Bama. The winner will be notified Tuesday, September 29 and announced at the Bama Art House screening that evening.

The winner must redeem the ticket by December 31, 2015 for one event only with redemption valid at the Tuscaloosa location. The ticket cannot be redeemed for cash and cannot be utilized on Alabama Football Home Game weekends.

Proceeds from the giveaway will help The Arts Council continue its mission to promote the arts in Tuscaloosa County by contributing to:


  • Maintenance, restoration and programming at The Bama Theatre and the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center
  • Educational outreach programs that impact thousands of local students: Bama Fanfare, Spectra, Poetry Out Loud, Visual Art Achievement Awards
  • Small Grants program available to local arts organizations and artists
  • Art Competitions on the local and state levels
  • Gallery Spaces for the display of local artists’ work

The Bama Theatre is located at 600 Greensboro Avenue in downtown Tuscaloosa and the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center at 620 Greensboro Ave. on the same block.
