McKinney Performing Arts Center launches a 100-day fundraising campaign

McKinney Performing Arts Center (MPAC) today announced a fundraising campaign called 100 Days, 100 Donations. MPAC, located at the former Collin County Courthouse in the center of Historic Downtown McKinney, is asking patrons for support to continue to bring music, entertainment and activities to Historic Downtown McKinney.

The popular Hues and Blues art exhibit and the upcoming Summer Concert Series featuring Larry Gatlin are recent entertainment options enjoying great success at MPAC.

'We want to keep bringing non-stop activity to downtown McKinney, but we need a little help from our friends. In order to maintain favorite programs and bring new talent, we have a goal of gaining financial support from an additional 100 individuals, families and companies,' said Amy Rosenthal, Director of MPAC and McKinney Main Street. 'MPAC has enjoyed tremendous support from our community over the years and we are very thankful.'

There are two levels of sponsorship for MPAC.

  • $100 - MPAC Partner: The annual membership program for individuals and families, who receive special advance notice on certain events, pre-show recognition and their name/business mentioned on the website
  • $250-$500 - Bravo Club: The exclusive annual membership has all the perks of an MPAC Partner with a little more applause. Invitations to pre-show receptions, exclusive meet and greets with artists and performers, discounts on series packages and more.

Program and donation information is available by calling 972-547-2650 or on the MPAC website. The 100 Days, 100 Donations campaign officially launches on Monday, June 19, and continues through Tuesday, Sept. 26.
