Scott Pioli Helps Out Kansas City Repertory Theatre - Kansas City News

Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli is helping out our local Kansas City Repertory Theatre by offering a challenge to all who wish to donate to the Theatre's cause. Pioli and his wife Dallas have offered to match every donation that anyone makes, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000 between now and June 30th, 2012.

From Scott Pioli; "Like many of you, Dallas and I are huge fans of the excellent work the Kansas City Repertory Theatre creates in Kansas City. I have been inspired by new plays, reimagined classics and especially by the work the Kansas City Repertory Theatre does at Student Matinees with children who otherwise receive no exposure to the arts. Today we hope to draft you to join a team of individuals who understand the importance of investing in theatre of the highest caliber right here in our own community. Together, we could raise $20,000 for one of the MVP's of Kansas City's cultural scene and help kick-off another exciting season at the Kansas City Repertory Theatre. Sincerely, Scott Pioli, Kansas City Board of Directors and GM of The Kansas City Chiefs - P.S. Don't forget to send your gift by this Saturday, June 30th so Dallas and I can match your gift."
