Local legends of the Overture Center honored

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Overture Center of the Arts is honoring six donors for their generosity.

Each of the 2018 Local Legends donated $100,000 this year. The money goes to support the upkeep and expenses for the center. One of those donors, Betty Harris Custer, said the Overture Center has helped to revitalize Madison's downtown area.

"Now it's had a resurgence ever since the construction of the Overture center as a place not only to work and to shop and to attend theater or dance but to live," said Harris Custer.

The Overture Center is challenging the Madison community to match the Local Legends donations of $600,000. The center says all of the money will go towards funding the arts.
