Missouri Theatre Accepts Donations
The Missouri Symphony Society accepted a $500,000 gift from the estate of Mary Nell Porter, a long time supporter of the Missouri Symphony.
Another $100,000 came from Boone County National Bank.
Half of the money will go for repairs, the rest will be used for an endowment fund.
"It's one less check we have to write every month. And it's such a big opportunity not only for our general operating fund but the plans to restore this building," Missouri Theatre Executive Director David White said.
The donations put the Capital Campaign at almost half of what it needs to open in June 2008.
