Toyota Contributes $10K To Kentucky Theatre Fundraiser
The Kentucky Theatre is $10,000 close to meeting its $1.5 million fundraising goal thanks to a grant from Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Kentucky.
Kentucky Theatre board member Ann Hagan-Michel says Toyota was attracted to the educational resource the theatre provides. The donation puts the current total at just over $285,000 dollars.
Fundraisers say the money is needed to upgrade the 90-year-old downtown landmark with newer technology, fixtures, carpeting, and to restore the well-known marquee. Individual donations are being accepted at kentuckytheater.com/friends.
