HARRAH'S MAKES GIFT TO THEATRE RENOVATION

The Harrah’s Foundation has awarded $50,000 to CBU for its theatre renovation project. When renovated, the new University Theatre will serve as a venue not only for the theatre arts but a hi-tech meeting space for business programs and seminars. The renovation project was spurred by an initial gift of $300,000 from the Barret School of Banking; it is scheduled to begin in November and be completed in March of 2007. Interested businesses and individuals who would like to support the theatre renovation project should contact Andrew Prislovsky, CBU director of development, at 901-321-3278.
