Staller Center Donor Stories

The Staller Center is fortunate to have many dedicated patrons and Friends who support us at every level.    Our daily operations and all of our performance expenses are paid using private funding from ticket sales, and more critically donations.    We wanted to start sharing some Staller Center donor stories, as people give in many ways and for many different reasons.  Please visit this page often to see more stories!

of the Founders Room in the Staller Center for the Arts.  The event included a
celebratory dinner in the new Al and Harriet Zlatin Founders Room and performance by
Megan Hilty on October 20, 2018 which fell just days after what would have been her
