Al. Ringling Theatre receives $513,000 challenge grant

A $513,000 challenge grant from the Jeffris Family Foundation will help fuel fundraising efforts to restore the Al. Ringling Theatre (ART) in Baraboo, but the ART Friends group must raise twice that by 2015 to receive the money. More than $285,000 has already been raised toward the group’s million-dollar-plus goal, according to reports. The building will be 100 years old in 2015.
