“Over half of the $4 million cost has been donated or pledged by the generous fans and friends of KVMR and the Nevada Theatre. In November, 2015, The Bridge Street Project launched a new $1,000,000 capital campaign to reduce construction loans to a manageable level. To date, $377,000 has been raised towards this goal. A few opportunities remain to name rooms or the entire building for donations of $5,000 or more. Please join us in this collaboration that is creating a cultural legacy for our community,” according to its website.
That’s still a $623,000 shortfall.
Here are some responses:
“Because of Rebane’s diatribe of hate, I’ve stopped supporting KVMR. The policy of KVMR to support distasteful, hateful and erroneously dangerous opinions in the name of some sort of liberal tolerance, is misguided and I won’t lend my ear or pocketbook to it.” —Karla Arens
“I agree 100%. I stopped when Rebane started. Terribly misplaced magnanimity and just plain stupidity and willfulness on the part of KVMR.” -brucelevy
