This weekend marks the first anniversary of the Georgia Theatre's devastating fire. Over the past year, theater owner Wil Green has worked diligently to rebuild this important historic building in downtown Athens. Through a partnership with The Georgia Trust, the Georgia Theatre Rehabilitation Fund was established to accept donations to be used solely for the rehabilitation of this historic theater. To date, over 150 individuals and organizations have contributed to this fund. Additional support has come from benefit concerts, auctions and even beer. Thank you to all who have contributed and continue to support this theater's rehabilitation!
