Pave the Way Brick Donation Program

Remember or honor a friend, neighbor, loved one or family pet.

Proudly display your own name or the name of your business.

Beautify the sidewalk with a few poetic words.

By leaving your mark on Geneva’s street-scapes, you can support the Smith Opera House at the same time.

Our Pave the Way Brick Donation Program allows you to make a generous donation to The Smith and have a brick inscribed with the name or message of your choosing.  Your brick will then be installed in the sidewalk directly in front of the Smith Opera House. Pave the Way is a lasting memento of your love of the arts in the Geneva community.

The donation for each brick is $100.

Here is what you need to do.

  1. Click the “Donate Now” button above and fill out the contact information requested. In the Donation field, be sure to type in $100 per brick.
  2. After you fill out this page and hit the “Continue to Payment” button, where you will be taken to a PayPay checkout page to complete your donation via debit or credit card.
  3. Once we receive your payment, a Smith staff member will call you to gather the message you would like to have engraved in the brick. (See Brick Inscriptions below for  instructions on how much text you can fit on a brick.)

You can also call 315-781-5483 or stop by the Smith Box Office at 82 Seneca Street in Geneva between 10 am and 4 pm Tuesday through Friday to make your donation and choose your inscription. You will still need to make payment via debit or credit card.

Thank you!

Each brick has room for three lines of text, 15 characters each line, for a total of 45 characters. Spaces between words and punctuation marks count as characters.
