Pavilion did better in 2010 then in 2009 – but look closely

As I suspected, and you can see from the financial report, the PAV got almost $400,000 from a one time donation due to the naming of the Hall in 2010. This of course is not a thorough or clear financial report. It is obvious that the original report was cherry picked and simplified, which is fine, but I would love to see the whole audit. It seems contributions were up quite a bit in 2010. You can watch Toll brag about the Pavilion during the informational meeting.

Ha, KDLT is right this second reporting this as fantastic news! Yeah, ignore the gift that made the difference, and try to claim that it’s “better shows”.

I updated the post, it seems contributions were up, and grants almost doubled. So in reality, it really has nothing to do with revenue.

Ticket sales were only up $200,000, which in the scope of things, isn’t that much when you figure inflation. What worries me is that after you strip out the donations and contributions the Pav did about the same in 2010 as they did in 2009.

200K isn’t much. It’s less than half the cost for a Huether consultant. It’ll not build 1 tennis court for his wife. I don’t think it would even cover the parking lot director bonus.
