Dr. Martin and Ruth Silbiger
The Silbigers know the value of giving. And they know the value of the arts.
That's why when Dr. Martin Silbiger decided to honor his wife Ruth, his first thoughts were of TBPAC.
"Ruth and I have spent many wonderful evenings together at TBPAC," said Dr. Silbiger. This gift to TBPAC's endowment in my wife's honor commemorates our 50th wedding anniversary. Not only do we love TBPAC, its mission to bring art to our community, and the many people there who have become like family to us, but we also recognize that a gift to the endowment will never fade."
The recent gift from the Silbigers joins a previous endowment contribution and is aimed at celebrating TBPAC's impressive history while laying the groundwork for the future. This generous $1.25 million gift will be used to further support TBPAC's education and mission-based programs. In addition, these funds are being used as a challenge to encourage others to make outright gifts to the TBPAC endowment.
In recognition, the lobby of Carol Morsani Hall has been named in honor of Ruth Silbiger. The Ruth Silbiger Lobby is the site of a wide range of events, from weddings to corporate functions, and it buzzes with thousands of people at operas, concerts and Broadway shows.
