Capital Campaign 2018

Capital Campaign Goal: facility's renovation - Air Conditioning System!
We are counting on individuals and organizations to support the center.

Our successful Capital Campaigns 2016 and 2017 enabled the center to acquire a building in January 2017 and a grand piano in September  2017.  The facility includes a concert hall, exhibition hall/ballroom/banquet hall, meeting room, kitchen, and three classrooms.  Throughout year of 2017, the Center has managed about 30 educational and cultural programs.  Every program of the center supports the mission of the organization - to introduce, celebrate, and promote Russian art and culture to the community.   

Our activities in Fall and Winter 2017 included the events such as, Grigory Popovich Theater Pet Show, Siberian Throat Singing Ensemble Alash, Russian Documentary Film Festival, Tribute to Muslim Magomaev, Piano Jazz music by Dmitri Naiditch, Zigatulin Brothers, Russian Folk Trio - Moscow Nights, Tribute to Vladimir Vysotsky, and Halloween party for children, Heritage Awards Dinner, and New Year Eve Party.

Unfortunately, in summer time we were limited to offering public activities at the center due to luck of an air conditional system at the building.  We could not run the Russian Summer Camp 2017 for children on premises either.  Summer was too hot for the cultural activities and summer camp.  We are starting a new capital campaign that would help us to install an air conditional system before next summer.
