Palace restoration fundraiser

CANTON, OH —The Palace Theatre is holding a fundraiser this month so it can be refurbished and appreciated by more generations.

The “atmospheric” theater — one of only a few dozen of its kind still in existence — remains as an elder resident of downtown’s Market Avenue N. It’s used for more than 300 arts and community programs. Canton Ballet performances. Movie nights. Concerts. Dance studio recitals. Broadway-style productions. Musical events. Fundraisers.

But heavy traffic invariably leaves footprints, says Georgia Paxos, executive director, and the money left behind by patrons doesn’t pay for the maintenance needed to keep the entertainment venue pristine. That’s why the Canton Palace Theatre Association is putting on “An Affair to Remember” Feb. 28 at McKinley Grand Hotel —to help fund necessary repairs to the theater.

Great photograph and great cause. It seems like the community supports this theatre. So I would guess they will get the money they need in the end.
