PIONEER THEATRE COMPANY TO HOLD ITS

2014 BRAVO! AWARD GALA

Pioneer Theatre Company will present its 2014 Bravo! Award on Friday, May 9, 2014.

Each year Pioneer Theatre Company presents the Bravo! Award to an individual, foundation or corporation in recognition of significant philanthropic and civic contributions to PTC, the arts and the community. This year’s honoree is Dan Lofgren and Cowboy Partners.

Pioneer Theatre Company had been seeking a permanent solution to its artist housing needs for fifteen years when Dan Lofgren joined the theatre’s Board of Trustees in 2004. On his own initiative and his own expense, Lofgren secured an option for the purchase of the property that is now Meldrum House. He spent endless hours working with the city, community councils, engineers, and architects—and as a result of his commitment to the project, Lofgren and Cowboy Partners took a property that was a blight on the University of Utah neighborhood and turned it into the finest actor-housing in the country for Pioneer Theatre Company.

The award will be presented at the annual PTC Bravo! Award Gala fundraiser. Groups and individuals from the community are invited to attend the event to celebrate the honoree on Friday, May 9, 2014. Gala attendees will enjoy a reception and dinner at Rice-Eccles Stadium followed by a performance of Sweet Charity at Simmons Pioneer Memorial Theatre.

For additional information call Diane Parisi at 801-581-6960.

Sponsors for the Bravo! Award Gala include George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, Zions Bank, Cowboy Partners, Modern Display/THA Investments, RED Capital Group, Wells Fargo, The Boyer Company, Durham Jones and Pinegar, Gardner Company, Garbett Homes, Hubbard Radio, IC Group, Myriad Genetics, SentryWest Insurance Services, and Parr Brown Gee and Loveless.
