Show your support for the Panida Theater and spread some love of your own by taking part in the Panida Secret Admirer Valentine Program.

This clever fundraiser aims to give secret admirers a way to show their affections — while also giving some assistance to our community theater during these troubled times.

For just a $10 contribution, the Panida will hand-deliver your anonymous Valentine, sweetened with two pieces of chocolate. The program is open for delivery to addresses anywhere in Sandpoint, Kootenai and Ponderay.

To sign up, go to and enter the portal. The $10 you donate will be dedicated to help fund the restoration of the marquee, which is in desperate need of repair. After filling out the giver/recipient form, your handmade Valentine and chocolate gift will be delivered on Saturday, Feb. 13. The last day to order a Valentine is Monday, Feb. 8, so don’t delay. Show some love, Sandpoint.

While we have you ...

... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.

You can contribute at either Paypal or Patreon.

Want to support independent local journalism?

The Sandpoint Reader is our town's local, independent weekly newspaper. "Independent" means that the Reader is locally owned, in a partnership between Publisher Ben Olson and Keokee Co. Publishing, the media company owned by Chris Bessler that also publishes Sandpoint Magazine and Sandpoint Online. Sandpoint Reader LLC is a completely independent business unit; no big newspaper group or corporate conglomerate or billionaire owner dictates our editorial policy. And we want the news, opinion and lifestyle stories we report to be freely available to all interested readers - so unlike many other newspapers and media websites, we have NO PAYWALL on our website. The Reader relies wholly on the support of our valued advertisers, as well as readers who voluntarily contribute. Want to ensure that local, independent journalism survives in our town?
