Hey, somebody’s got to be committed to transparency in this whole Virginia Performing Arts Foundation mess; if city council’s not interested, it might as well be us! So, ladies and germs, we are pleased to present the fruit of our most recent FOIA request: a new batch of current bank statements for VAPAF and the Carpenter Center for the Performing Arts.
Bank accounts go up, and bank accounts go down, to paraphrase Carolyn Cuthrell, but like mine, VAPAF’s don’t seem to go anywhere, really. Maybe that’s because they have such astonishing salaries to pay, but at least they’re trying to save some money by billing the city for fees they paid…to the city (cue the sound of the Mayor’s head exploding)!
Anyway, for those keeping score:
VAPAF last month: $759,333.05
VAPAF this month: $924,100.47
Net gain: $164,767.42
CCPA last month: $717,575.30
CCPA this month: $467,898.70
Net loss: $249,676.60
TOTAL LOSS FOR JULY: $84,909.18
Well, building permits are expensive.
We have a real fun week planned–be sure to check back!
