While excited about the recent purchase of the Bergen Park Church building as the new home of the Center for the Arts Evergreen, Steve Sumner, CEA executive director, is now facing the challenge of acquiring funds to renovate it.
“We badly need help,” Sumner says. “The building needs to be totally gutted and rebuilt.”
Last month the CAE capital campaign committee purchased the property for $500,000. To complete the renovation, another $600,000 is required, according to estimates.
