On July, 14, 2011, the Erie County Gaming Revenue Authority made an historic investment of just under $1.3 million in our community’s Lead Assets: ArtsErie, Erie Art Museum, Erie County Historical Society, Erie Philharmonic, Erie Playhouse, Erie Zoological Society, ExpERIEnce Children’s Museum, Flagship Niagara League, and Mary D’Angelo Performing Arts Center. Our organization is honored to be named one of the nine Lead Assets, and is grateful to ECGRA for its generous gift of $163,328 for 2011 and 2012. We plan to put the funds to use in our productions, programming and outreach efforts.
