Everything But The Cash

The city of Orlando wants to build a new performing arts center, and everything has been falling into place lately. The mayor is on board, and a prime plot of land in the downtown district has been acquired and earmarked for the project. There’s just one thing missing: $200 million. So far, not a single donor has come forward to offer assistance for the project, and one official has suggested that “presenting a community such as Orlando with a fund-raising goal as large as $200 million can be overwhelming.”
