In Memory of George Kisslinger

Organized by: Emily Ruddock

Emily's Photo

THE STORY:

Do you remember George? Of course you do! Do you remember his famous grilled cheese sandwiches? Of course you do! Do you remember his friendly face greeting you at the Louisville Airport? How can you forget!

For plenty of Apprentices, Interns, Staff and Guest Artists of Actors Theatre of Louisville, George Kisslinger made time at Actors just a bit more special- a bit more like home.


In honor of George's passing and as tribute to his legacy of hospitality, this fundraising page hopes to raise enough money to support the Actors Associates mission. Please consider giving - and who knows, we might just raise enought money for a Grill Cheese Sandwich endowment!

The details:

Where will my money go?

All money will be given directly to the Associates bank account.  

I dont want to give money online or through this website.

We get it, the internet is a crazy place. Never fear, you can still give! Email: Allison Hammons, Director of Volunteer and Audience Relations at Actors. AHammons@actorstheatre.org.  She can help you send along a check or stop by the theatre with cash, should you prefer.

What are we fundraising for? 

Once the money is raised, the Associates Executive Board will designate the funds to best support their mission of supporting Actors Theatre of Louisville through volunteerism and hospitality. Also (cross fingers) maybe a little plaque in the Associates Kitchen in honor of George.

Wait...who is this Emily Ruddock character? Why is her name listed as organizer?

Emily is a former Acting Apprentice (03-04) and Actors Theatre Staff member (2004-2012). She recalls George yelling down the basement hallway for her to come back and have a little spaghetti becuase "you look tired and you need to eat!".  She counts this as one of her favorite Actors memories. She will not touch a dime of the money raised and simply set up the fundrasing page to honor a man she truly admires. Email her if you have questions: winnerruddock@gmail.com
