Proms Generate Over $15,000
We want to send out a big "Thank You" to all the musicians and donors. The Summer Proms are now done and they were a great success. We received over $15,000 in donations at the door from a total audience of about 1500 during the nine evenings.Half of the donations went to the musicians. We used the other half to pay the rent to the congregation and to pay $4,000 toward the repair of a main water pipe which broke this summer. We even had some left over for our next project. Most importantly we continued to demonstrate that this building can be a vital self sustaining cultural centre for Saskatoon. We demonstrated that musicians and audiences love this building and that it can have a positive economic impact for our cultural community, generating $7500 for our local musicians.
