Rupert, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) A musical fundraiser was held this evening in Rupert for the Wilson theatre.
Performers included country western groups Vince & Mindi, and the Chicken Dinner Road Bluegrass Band.
For the last 14 years Rupert residents have come together to help restore the theater to its former glory.
Proceeds from tonight's event will go towards renovations on the historic theatre built in the 1920s.
Chris Jackson, Executive Director for the Wilson Threatre, notes, "Finally getting to the point where we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We need light and sound and that's what we're working on right now."
To date, over 1.6 million dollars have been raised for the project.
Jackson says they will be able to meet their goal after earning another two thousand dollars.
