Sag Harbor, NY – August 24th, 2013 – Bay Street Theatre is pleased to announce that an anonymous donor has promised a gift of $300,000 to launch a matching funds campaign. The gift was in response to Bay Street’s formal announcement that Scott Schwartz will be the new Artistic Director for the 2014 season.
“We couldn’t be more grateful for such a generous gift,” says Executive Director Tracy Mitchell. “It’s the kind of support and backing that a non-profit theater requires and we couldn’t be more excited now to make it a reality.”
This anonymous gift is being used to launch the Fall Matching Funds Campaign with every donation matched dollar for dollar up to $300,000. The gift was recently announced at an estate of a long-time lover of Bay Street, during its “Close the Gap, Fill the Seats” Cocktail Reception for patrons.
“An investment in the future of Bay Street is an investment in our community and the services we are committed to providing to our partners, business owners, and community members both children and adult alike.”
