Carolina Theatre hopes community support will help boost chances of getting $150,000 in restoration funding

The Carolina Theatre in Greensboro is hoping community support will help boost its chances to receive $150,000 in restoration funding.

Greensboro has been selected as a Partners in Preservation city, making it one of 25 cities eligible to receive a $150,000 grant focused on a historic preservation project.

Downtown Greensboro Incorporated says the theatre’s downtown location combined with its almost 90-year history, made it the ideal project to support.

“We have this historic stock of buildings down here that other cities our size or in North Carolina don’t have,” said Jodee Ruppel, vice president of strategic initiatives at DGI.

People can vote five times a day until Oct. 31st to support Greensboro, the only North Carolina city selected among the 25 cities.
