|You can soon take one of the seats above home as part of a plan
to refurbish the seating area of the Lester Centre of the Arts in Prince Rupert
A chance for residents, businesses or industrial groups to forever make their mark on the Lester Centre of the Arts has been announced this week.
With the Home for the Arts in Prince Rupert launching a "seat sale" seeking financial support towards the replacement of the theatre chairs which are now thirty five years old.
Lester Centre of the Arts General Manager Chris Armstrong outlined the scope of the program by way of an announcement from Wednesday.
“The existing seats are 35 years old, which is around the time you’d want to replace them,We’ve started a project to acquire and install new seats, and we thought the community would like to take part in it.
Each new “seat” will cost $800, which will be considered a tax-deductible donation to the Lester Centre. In return, buyers will get their name (or their organization’s name) on a sign that will be installed in the entryway to the seats in the lower bowl.
Everyone will see that sign. Your name and your generosity will be displayed for many years to come,”
The seat sale, which is part of the Lester Centre “Please Be Seated” project, starts now and will run until March 31, 2023."
