Yesterday, it was a $3 million gift to the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts — an additional $3 million gift from Diane and Hal Brierley — but today, it’s a still-mysterious $6 million gift. The DCPA folks aren’t saying who, yet. But that makes 129 gifts of $1 million or more into the center’s $333 million kitty.
With their latest gift, the Brierleys have boosted their total donation to the DCPA to $8 million. The money is going to the Diane and Hal Brierley Esplanade, which will run from the Wyly Theater through the Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park. And then there’s the Brierley Encore Suite in the Winspear Opera House, kind of a fancy green room for receptions and the like.
