There is no limit to how many seats
anyone can buy.
In a joint statement, Paul Pontiff,
president of the Glens Falls Civic Center
Foundation and Dan Burke, president of
the Coalition said, “Our mission is to make
the Civic Center a major entertainment and
sports venue for years to come. One of the
key ingredients to making this happen is
to raise funds for both the operations and
purchase of the building. This campaign is
critical to accomplish our goals.”
Both organizations feel that the Civic
Center is a regional asset, and with this
type of campaign people in the community
have an opportunity to feel they are a part
of the revitalization of the venue.
To jump-start the undertaking, the
boards of both organizations purchased or
pledged to over 200 seats.
