Antero Resources Presents $100,000 Check to Robinson Grand Capital Campaign

Clarksburg, WV – Leadership from Antero Resources, the Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center, and the City of Clarksburg gathered at the historic theatre this morning to recognize and accept a major contribution to the performing arts center’s capital campaign.

In late 2017, Antero Resources made a $600,000 commitment to the theatre’s restoration, renovation, and on-going operation. This commitment is the largest that the Robinson Grand Capital Campaign has received to-date. Today, Antero Resources is continuing its steadfast support by issuing a $100,000 check towards their $600,000 commitment. Following today’s donation, the energy company will have donated $500,000 in support of the theatre’s capital campaign.

“We’re deeply thankful for our dedicated supporters, including Antero Resources, whose generosity was critical to restoring this very special institution and also helps to ensure its survival for many years to come,” Tolley said during the check presentation. “This theater is such a huge part of our community here. Antero Resources has been with us throughout the construction and re-opening phases, but also remained steadfast in their support during this unprecedented pandemic, which has been crucial to ensuring the Robinson Grand can remain operational and ready to open its doors again. Their support has not only helped us to sustain, it has also helped to produce free virtual content on our stage that has been enjoyed by everyone throughout the past several months and continues through the end of March.”

The Robinson Grand Performing Arts Center is currently planning to re-open for public events during the spring of 2021, with a ramp-up that coincides with state/local restrictions, as the pandemic impact begins to decrease. Major plans are beginning to take place with numerous rescheduled events from 2020, while also including plans to release new and exciting events for the fall and winter of 2021, along with 2022.
