With less than a month to go before Christmas, a huge gift has arrived early for the Imperial Theater's Keep It Live Campaign. Following a performance last night, Arthur and Jack Irving handed over a cheque for half a million dollars to put the fundraiser over the top of their goal of $2.5 million dollars. Peter Smith is General manager of the Theater and tells CHSJ News, he is flabbergasted by the generosity.

Cindy Millet is a member of the Capital Campaign Cabinet and works for Irving Oil and tells CHSJ News, she is overwhelmed by the gift. As a way of thanking the Irving's for their generous gift, the Imperial Theater is renaming the auditorium Fort Reliance for the next 15 years.
