From our friend Chris Byrd at Broadway-Fillmore Alive:
While making arrangements to pay for and pick up the light from Navarro Gallery in Toronto, Roberto Navarro dropped a nice Christmas surprise on me. He is going to donate the fixture back to the Central Terminal under the condition that we give the $3000 raised to the Central Terminal Restoration Corporation’s (CTRC) Adopt a Tile campaign. As you can imagine, my heart dropped and I can’t even describe how I felt when I heard…simply incredible news for this effort and for the Central Terminal.
The light is going to be picked up on Thursday and brought back to Buffalo.
On Saturday, the light will be on display for the public to see at the Adam Mickiewicz Library and Dramatic Circle’s End of the World Christmas Party from 8pm to 11pm. (Admission is $5.00 for non members or free for people wearing christmas sweaters and anyone that brings food or snacks.) The idea is to give people an opportunity to see the light before it is formally turned over to the CTRC next week.
Once again, thank you to all those who gave towards the effort. It was truly a special Buffalo moment where the community came together to give back and support the efforts of the CTRC in keeping one of Broadway-Fillmore’s treasure’s ALIVE!
Thank you Roberto Navarro for making the effort even more incredible!
