Eau Claire (WQOW) - The Pablo Center closed in March because of COVID-19 and officials believe it will stay closed for the rest of the year.
Without event revenue, the venue is struggling to stay afloat and they're asking for your help.
The goal of the "Bridge Campaign" is to raise $500,000 to help fund operational needs through December.
The Pablo Center joined other venues across the nation seeking financial assistance to struggling venues just last month
Pablo officials say without additional federal relief they'll need $1.75 million just to maintain the building through June of next year.
There are a couple different ways you can help support the Pablo Center.
The first is by going online or calling the box office at 715-832-ARTS (2787) to become a Member or donate. All contributors who give $25.00 and above to the campaign will have their name added to the legacy donor wall in the OakLeaf Physicians Lobby of Pablo Center, as well as be added to the legacy list of donors in all Season 3 programs.
The second way to support the campaign is by purchasing a ticket to the virtual Pablo Center Gala. This year’s Gala will be streamed virtually through Perigon webcasting on Thursday, August 13, at 7:30 p.m.
