CLEARWATER – An independent panel of judges recently named Ruth Eckerd Hall Inc. the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Large Sized Nonprofit of the Year.

The announcement was made at the annual awards hosted by the Clearwater Regional Chamber of Commerce at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort in Clearwater. Zev Buffman, Ruth Eckerd Hall Inc. president and CEO, accepted the award on behalf of the staff.

“Without the support from the city of Clearwater and the commitment of our staff and board of directors, this award would not be possible,” Buffman said in a press release. “I am proud and thrilled to work with such talented people who are dedicated to enriching lives in our community with the best performances and educational programs for the entire Tampa Bay area. We will continue our 30-year tradition of presenting the best in entertainment and educational classes at Ruth Eckerd Hall and the recently completed Capitol Theatre in downtown Clearwater.”

This annual award honors nonprofit organizations that make a difference in the community every day and recognizes organizations that demonstrate strong management structures that help them meet their service goals.

For more than 30 years, Ruth Eckerd Hall has strived to be a leader in the community, providing performing arts, concerts and educational experiences to the local area.

Ruth Eckerd Hall Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, manages and operates the Richard B. Baumgardner Center for the Performing Arts, the Capitol Theatre and other related site events such as Ruth Eckerd Hall On The Road and Friends of Music.

Ruth Eckerd Hall, Inc.’s mission is to engage the community to master, experience, discover and explore quality performing arts.

Richard B. Baumgardner Center for the Performing Arts, owned by the City of Clearwater and operated by Ruth Eckerd Hall, Inc., includes the 2,200-seat Ruth Eckerd Hall, the 200-seat Murray Studio Theatre, the Marcia P. Hoffman School of the Arts and the 5,500 sq. ft. Margarete Heye Great Room and is located at 1111 McMullen Booth Road, Clearwater, Florida 33759.

Ruth Eckerd Hall was named the No.1 theater in the world for venues with 2,500 seats or less for the decade (2000-2009) by Billboard, based on number of shows, tickets sold and gross ticket sales. Ruth Eckerd Hall is consistently ranked as a top five venue in the world with 2,500 seats or less by various industry trade publications including Billboard, Pollstar and Venues Today.
