Benefits The Kentucky Opera
Our friends over at the Kentucky Opera are back with another stunning raffle! This is their 24th year holding their annual fundraiser. Check this one out…
Kentucky Opera was founded in 1952 by Moritz von Bomhard and designated the State Opera of Kentucky in 1982. Recently the Kentucky Opera has undergone an evolution. In January 2006, David Roth was announced as the new general director of Kentucky Opera, succeeding Ms. Sandler . Roth had been with Fort Worth Opera since 2000 where he balanced the artistic and fiscal responsibilities as both Director of Production and Director of Finance. During his tenure with Kentucky Opera, Roth has continuously strived to push the artistic levels of the company with debut productions and artists.
Kentucky Opera is financed by ticket sales, corporate and individual sponsors, the Fund for the Arts, the Kentucky Arts Council, and local fundraisers such as the Viva Voce, Carnevale, and the annual Car Raffle.
From its humble beginnings in 1952, when the budget of $10,000 produced three operas, Kentucky Opera has grown to a respected regional company with an annual budget in excess of $2.4 million. With the addition of Kentucky Opera Studio Artists Program and other growing outreach programs, the company is well positioned to take its place as a leader in the region and the nation in the dynamic field of opera.
The RS 60 Spyder’s interior features and equipment also pay homage to its famous ancestor: door entryguards made of stainless steel that proudly show off the model designation, a race-inspired gearshift lever and special surface texture in the center sections of the sports seats and the center door linings as well as on the steering wheel rim and handbrake lever.
Reflecting its model designation, the new Boxster RS 60 Spyder is limited to 1,960 units worldwide, which is prominently displayed on a silver-colored placard on the lid of the glove compartment. Less than 800 of the 1,960 units produced will make it to North American showrooms.
