CLEARWATER – Ruth Eckerd Hall recently received a $250,000 gift from Raymond James as part of the theater’s ongoing Expanding the Experience fundraising campaign.

Zev Buffman, Ruth Eckerd Hall president and CEO, received the gift from Tom James, executive chairman of Raymond James, in front of the Ruth Eckerd Hall board of directors, members and other guests in attendance at the theater’s annual dinner on Jan. 25.

In recognition of the generous donation, the central ticket office at Ruth Eckerd Hall will be named the Raymond James Central Ticket Office at Ruth Eckerd Hall.

“On behalf of Ruth Eckerd Hall, I am honored to accept this gift from Raymond James, and our good friend and partner, Tom James,” said Buffman in a press release. “Their commitment to Ruth Eckerd Hall, the arts and arts education cannot be measured. We are thankful for their support of Ruth Eckerd Hall and our next phase of expanding the experience.”

“Raymond James has been a long-term supporter of Ruth Eckerd Hall because we believe entertainment, education in the arts and the indirect benefits of having an active performance center are essential to a great place to live and work,” said James. “Zev Buffman, the REH Board and staff have done an outstanding job of growing the quantity and quality of activities. I encourage other local businesses to contribute to the current capital campaign.”

The Expanding the Experience campaign began in 2013 with the renovation of the Capitol Theatre in downtown Clearwater. In 2015, the Murray Theatre at Ruth Eckerd Hall was restored and last year, the Margarete Heye Great Room was completely renovated, including a new commercial kitchen. The $250,000 gift from Raymond James will be used towards Phase I of the Ruth Eckerd Hall Expansion, which includes the reconfiguration of Ruth Eckerd Hall Drive and the entrance for parking and valet.
