The wonderful Fitzgerald Theater is a finalist for a historic preservation grant from Partners in Preservation from American Express. Partners in Preservation is taking popular votes on Facebook. What does that mean? Two things:
The popular vote winner will get more than $100,000 in funding. And you can help.
If the Fitz wins they'll put the money towards restoring and repainting the plaster ceiling - which is rather ornate, check it the next time you're there - as well as the trim in the lobby and theater. The balcony railings would get a repair and they'll update directional signage.
"Like" the page, if you haven't already, and ok/authorize your account.
