CRESTED BUTTE, CO., Jan 6, 2014 – The Mount Crested Butte Performing Arts Center (MCBPAC) has completed a crucial step in its financing goals, completing a $3 million challenge grant fundraising effort by the end of 2013.

The $6 million matching campaign has been completed now, and the likelihood of the development of MCBPAC seems imminent. At a small gathering on the Sunday before the end of 2013, MCBPAC Co-President Tom Seymour announced, that this is now “more than a concept. With the $2.3 million in land donations, we have $17 million in commitments and we’re not done.”

The next step in the development process of the Mt. Crested Butte Performing Arts Center are to commission more details plans for the 500 seat performing arts venue.

The number needed to reach the full funding goal is $23 million, but it has been made known that a state-of-the-art facility can be brought to life on $17 million, which is a mark that has apparently been reached. $8 million from private donors, $6 million in public funds, and $2.3 million in donated land.

Having a facility like this on the other side of the mountains from I-70 would bring in not only notable talent, but also more clientele. Win-win for Crested Butte and the Colorado Mountain Industry.
