Performing Arts Center marks 100 $1M donors | Dallas Morning News | News for Dallas, Texas | Arts & Entertainment: "Only two years from completion, the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts crested a fundraising benchmark this week: 100 donors have given at least $1 million or more toward construction of the $275 million facility in the Arts District. Center officials identified the 100th donor of $1 million or more as the family of the late Texas congressman James M. Collins, who represented Dallas in the House of Representatives from the 1960s to the 1980s. Officials called the milestone unprecedented, saying that no other capital campaign benefiting a U.S. cultural institution has received 'this number of gifts of this size.'"
