The Dominion Resources Inc. Foundation announced its third grant to the Wayne Theatre Alliance’s Capital Campaign. The Foundation has given a total of $11,000 to the campaign to restore the 1926 Wayne Theatre in downtown Waynesboro.

“The Foundation is pleased to contribute to the ‘Count Down to Curtain Up’ campaign,” said Emmett W. Toms, External Affairs Manager for Dominion’s Central Region, who presented the Foundation’s check. “Dominion applauds the community’s effort for the Wayne Theatre project. Revitalization of the historic theatre building will continue the cultural heritage for the enhancement of the area’s quality of life.”

In accepting the check from the Dominion Resources Inc. Foundation, John Curry, Chairman of the Wayne Theatre Capital Campaign said, “I am very pleased that Dominion Resources Inc. Foundation has shown the confidence and understanding of our effort to restore the Wayne Theatre by making a generous gift to our community. We are working diligently to complete our remaining fundraising goals, so that final reconstruction can be completed.”

“Count Down to Curtain Up” was launched in May, 2010 for the purpose of raising the remaining private donations needed for final construction to commence.
