Become Part of The Avalon Theatre
KREX News Room
GRAND JUNCTION,Colo. On Monday, the Grand Junction City Council approved a fund-raising idea that will allow people donating to the Avalon Theatre to have their name attached to pieces of the building.
The Avalon Theatre Naming Rights Committee says they're keeping the Avalon name associated with the building. Now, they are excited to offer naming rights for certain places within the theater, for the right price.
Officials say the donation amount will decide where the name goes on the building.
"If someone is able to give $50,000, they might have their family name on the concession area in the main lobby. If they give $100,000 or $200,000, they may have their name on the entire lobby,” said Avalon Naming Rights Committee member Debbie Kovalik.
The Avalon Theatre naming committee has a list of recommended amounts, which coincide with naming such areas, like the lobby, the multi-purpose room, elevator and on the balcony.
Officials have received hundreds of donations so far, but have not starting naming just yet.
