Palace Theatre benefit nets $58,000
ALBANY A fundraiser held earlier this month to benefit the Palace Theatre in Albany raised $58,000, theater officials announced Friday.
Nearly 1,500 people attended the May 9 “Salute to the Palace.”
The event featured a live performance by Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show.
All proceeds from the evening benefitted the Palace Performing Arts Center, the nonprofit organization that operates the iconic landmark in downtown Albany.
“As a nonprofit arts organization, we rely on the enthusiasm of the local community to sustain our growth and success,” Palace Theatre Executive Director Holly Brown said in a statement. “We are delighted by the outpouring of support from our generous community members as we continue to bring interesting and exciting events to the Palace Theatre.”
