Funds for the Sun

Two years ago fundraising efforts began for the Revitalize the Sun renovation campaign for Gothenburg’s Sun Theatre. On Tuesday, Feb. 18, First State Bank of Gothenburg presented a check for $20,000 to the theatre to be used for that project. Through the generous donations of individuals and businesses, as well as the award of grants, the $300,000 project is fully funded. First State Bank pledged the $20,000 donation during the Dancing With the Stars fundraising event, and on Tuesday representatives of the bank joined President Karl Randecker (far right) in presenting the check to Sun Theatre Manager Roxanne Converse-Whiting. Construction on the project is expected to begin this Spring.
