Players of Utica Awarded $10,000 Grant through The Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties
The $10,000 gift will go help Players of Utica in completing construction projects related to the opening of its mainstage at 1108 State St. in Utica.
In May, members of The Community Foundation came to the Players of Utica theatre with the Foundation’s donor-advised fund committee to learn about the history and future of the organization. There were more than 30 guests, including Foundation staff, fund committee members and Players of Utica board members, toured the facility to review project progress and discuss future plans to open the building’s mainstage. Attendees also we treated to a sneak preview of a Players of Utica production in the building’s black box theatre.
After the tour and presentation, The Community Foundation contacted Players of Utica announce the $10,000 award granted to the theatre through the Gabriel, Joseph & Lila Mandour Karam Fund. The Players of Utica Board of Governors greatly appreciates this donation and welcomes any theatre supporters to join them in celebrating 106 seasons with the opening of its latest season on September 7th with “A Man for All Seasons.” More information can be found at www.playersofutica.org.
