Emerson Process Management Regulator Technologies, Inc., a founding sponsor of McKinney Performing Arts Center (MPAC), continues to establish itself as one the community’s leading corporate citizens. Last week, Dea Burger, Pat Delaney and Ira Dahlman of the McKinney based company presented a check for $24,000 as the title season sponsor for MPAC’s 2011-2012 Season of presented live performance.
David Taylor, MPAC Director, expressed his gratitude for the donation, “Since MPAC’s opening in 2006, Emerson has demonstrated its dedication to enhancing the quality of life in McKinney through its investment in our programs. As the season sponsor, Emerson’s contribution helps MPAC bring a wide variety of performance to McKinney. We are grateful for Emerson’s continued support and value the important role they have played in our development.”
In 2006, Emerson Process Management Regulator Technologies, Inc. provided MPAC with the funding to launch the Emerson Ticket Office. Emerson’s donation helped underwrite the build out and technology expenses associated with the ticket office, providing the community with convenient access to purchase tickets and empowering arts groups with the ability to gather important patron data. Each year since, Emerson has maintained its commitment to McKinney‘s cultural endeavors through sponsorship of MPAC presented events.
MPAC’s 2011-2012 Season begins this September with American Idol Season 5 winner Taylor Hicks on Saturday, September 17 and the McKinney Mash Up, a fundraiser highlighting the area’s local talent. The season continues with contemporary swing revival band Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and national off-Broadway touring revue “Girl Talk, the Musical.”
