  • Pablo Center Announces Bridge Campaign to Support Operational Needs

    Posted:

    Pablo Center at the Confluence announces the launch of the “Bridge Campaign” to aid in operational expenses. With COVID-19 halting mass gatherings and in-person performances since March of 2020 and projections indicating the potential to not reopen until January, that leaves Pablo Center with the daunting reality of having no revenue for nine months. The goal of the Bridge Campaign is to raise $500,000 to help bridge operational needs from August through December.  Without additional federal relief, Pablo Center will require $1.75M just to maintain the building through June of next year.
