Income from Soroptimist International of Ashland’s signature fundraiser, the pillow and blanket rental booth at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival Elizabethan Theater, has significantly decreased these past few years due to smoke from wildfires. In 2020, because of COVID 19 and the closure of OSF, we were unable to open the rental booth at all.
