At the RTM Meeting at Central Middle School on March 14, The Campaign for MISA will present a check to the Town of Greenwich for $1,185,000.

Lile Gibbons and Livvy Floren, honorary chairs of the fundraising committee, will speak briefly on behalf of The Campaign, highlighting the extraordinary effort and successful public/private partnership.

The Campaign was launched in February 2011, with the goal of raising $1 million to help defray the cost of the Greenwich High School Music Instructional Space and Auditorium Project (“MISA”) to the Town of Greenwich. In 90 days, pledges reaching that amount were received.

The Campaign for MISA, Inc. was incorporated as a nonstock corporation in Connecticut on March 18, 2011, and received its 501(c)(3) determination letter from the IRS effective as of that date.

“The Campaign for MISA is delighted at the successful completion of its fundraising efforts, and sincerely thanks all the generous donors who made the Campaign, and the construction of the new auditorium at Greenwich High School a reality,” the organizers wrote in a statement released on March 8.
