Vote for the Fitz!

Posted at 10:57 AM on September 21, 2011 by ClassicalMPR

Our own Fitzgerald Theater is in the running for a historic preservation grant from Partners in Preservation from American Express. And it's being run in a fairly interesting — and competitive — way.

They're taking votes on Facebook. You have to "like" their page in order to get access to the voting. You can vote every day through October 12, 2011.

The popular vote winner will get $125,000. If the Fitz wins, they'll be able to restore and repaint the ornate plaster ceiling and trim in the lobby and theater; repair the balcony railings and update directional signage.

How to vote:

• Go to facebook.com/PartnersinPreservation

• "Like" the page, if you haven't already, authorize your account.

• Find Fitzgerald Theater in the list of sites. Click on the vote button.

• Cast your vote for us! (and feel free to share with your Facebook friends...)

• Repeat tomorrow!
