On Tuesday November 25, 2008 from 5-9PM at the Ukrainian hall located at 562 Genesee Street the Western New York Minority Media Professionals, Inc. (WNYMMP), a 501 (c) 3 non-profit charity, will present the new building design and theater restoration plans. WNYMMP closed on the historic 1914 Sattler Theatre located at 512 Broadway in the city of Buffalo, New York on August 19th, 2008
When restored, the theatre building will house the Annual Professionals of Color in Media Hall of Fame Awards Dinner. It will have a multi-purpose community use including showcasing films, theatrical productions, hosting concerts, live events, business conferences and a dining hall.
WNYMMP plans the construction of a new facility, The Bob Coles Institute for the Media Arts and Technology, directly behind the theatre. This will also be the home of The Minorities in Media Museum.
Both the Sattler Theatre and the Minorities in Media Museum will bring thousands of tourists to the Downtown-East Michigan Avenue Historical Preservation District along Broadway.
The mission of WNYMMP INC is founding a professional media organization committed to promoting social and educational opportunities within the Western New York Community.
Donations of $25, $50, $75, and $100 will be accepted before and on the day of the event. Your donations are tax deductible.
