AO Announces "Max the Match" Matching Campaign
Anchorage, 15 January 2013 - Executive Director Kevin Patterson announced today that a group of donors have committed $250,000 toward a matching campaign for Anchorage Opera. The campaign will focus on cultivating new individual, corporate and foundation donations as well as expanding donations from current donors.
"The generosity exhibited by this group of donors clearly demonstrates a desire for a strong and vibrant opera company", comments Mr. Patterson. “They are asking the community to step up and join them in building a strong arts community."
"Max the Match" will officially kick off on the opening night of Tosca, the company's upcoming production with performances 25, 26 and 27 January at the Discovery Theater in the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts. The campaign is expected to be completed by the opening of the 2013 - 2014 opera season.
Proceeds from the campaign will be directed toward retiring past debts as well as building a cash reserve and endowment funds for future operations. Donations for Max the Match can be made by contacting Kevin Patterson at (907) 279-2557 ext.101.
