Arlene and John Dayton: 2009 Legends, It’s Official!

by Suzanne Calvin

Company-wide congratulations to Dallas Opera Board members Arlene and John Dayton, who are being honored by The Dallas Contemporary for their outstanding lead roles in the creation of a brand-new international cultural landmark: The Dallas Center for the Performing Arts. 

The Daytons will be among a select group honored with the annual “Legends Award” designed to recognize individuals “who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to the visual arts in Texas.”  They will share the stage at a September 17th fund-raiser with co-winners Vernon Fisher and Nash Flores. 

This one event raises approximately $75,000 for exhibitions and education programs; a worthy cause, indeed.

Suzanne Calvin, Assoc. Dir. of Marketing, The Dallas Opera
