Corning Opera House Cultural Center
We provide a multi-purpose historical facility to honor the community’s heritage and to enhance the cultural experiences through diverse entertainment, educational opportunities, tours and rentals.
How does your business make a positive impact on the community?
We positively impact all ages, from all areas, for a variety of reasons! Last year our county economic impact was $168,000. Our positive impacts are through a summer regional youth musical for children ages 5 to 15; partnering with the High School to showcase the student’s projects; partner with Johnny Carson Birthplace to showcase area talent; join with the Chamber to enhance the Holiday Headquarters and others. Our space is used for preschool programs, bridal showers, wine & cheese receptions, meet & greets, class reunions, family reunions, business meetings, weddings or any other number of uses. Businesses have moved to the area, because we offer something for their employees to do.
What would you do with a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card, training, and help from a SCORE mentor to grow your business?
The $1,000 gift card from Sam’s would be used towards giving our guests a better experience with seminar tables for business meetings and a dishwasher would improve our kitchen facilities. The training and SCORE mentor would help us to better market/advertise our space in this historic building and tell what we have to offer in our region. Also we’d like to promote our website and grow our social media presence to grow our customer base.
