Pavilion Theatre out of running for funding

The folks at Western Canada Theatre will have to look elsewhere for money to upgrade Pavilion Theatre as it didn’t make it into the finals of the Aviva Community Fund competition.

The theatre had entered in the $50,000 to $100,000 category of the online competition, looking for money to upgrade the decades-old building on Lorne Street, home to its operations, its youth-education programming and many plays.

The insurance company decides on projects to support through an online contest where supporters can vote daily for their preferred projects. The Pavilion entry made it to the semifinals, but a last-minute push by others bumped it from the top 10.
