“This is a challenge we’re excited to take on,” exclaimed Flushing Town Hall’s Executive and Artistic Director Ellen Kodadek. “It’s not every day that an institutional supporter presents such an offer. We're confident that many of those people – from Queens and beyond – who have enjoyed Flushing Town Hall over the years will step up to the plate and pitch in. Every dollar counts towards this goal, and will be doubled.”
“Flushing Town Hall is a hidden gem which will shine more brightly with the support of those who have enjoyed its performances and programs from across the globe,” the anonymous donor said through the Board member. “I truly believe in this institution – and I hope that this challenge will motivate others to open their wallets and hearts, thereby enabling this gem to be brighter than ever, enriching the culture of this diverse community.”
