Marion Community Foundation grant for new theatre sound system

Marion Community Foundation grant supports Palace Theatre sound improvements

The Palace Cultural Arts Association (PCAA), better known to the community as the Marion Palace Theatre, was recently awarded $198,000 from two funds at Marion Community Foundation. The monies will cover most associated costs of replacing the main auditorium’s failing speaker system, amps and wiring. The estimated total for the Palace Sound System project is $200,000.

Marion Palace Theatre Perpetual Care Fund, a designated fund which benefits the Palace Cultural Arts Association by providing financial support for capital improvements and major repairs of the Marion Palace Theatre, has awarded $108,000 towards the sound replacement project.

The Robert and Dorothy Wopat Community Fund at the Marion Community Foundation granted $90,000 toward the project. The Wopat Community Fund honors the memory and generosity of Robert M. & Dorothy C. Wopat, long-time residents of the Marion area, and creators of this forward-thinking fund. This endowment fund recommends grants to address a variety of community needs.
