Knoxville — The Auditorium Fund Raising Committee received a donation today from the Knoxville Heritage Community Foundation.
The committee is trying to raise money to create an endowment, and fund to ensure that the Knoxville Performing Arts Center will have funds available to upgrade equipment and technology as it becomes necessary. A portion of the funds being raised will also be used to try to offset increased costs to the school district, with the addition of the auditorium.
The Knoxville Heritage Community Foundation's donation totaled $3,500. As of Tuesday, the fund raising committee has raised approximately $56,000 in total.
