Miami PAC Changes Names With Major Gifts


MIAMI (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The new Miami Performing Arts Center received two major donations this week, including a multi-million naming rights sponsorship from the Carnival Corporation.

Carnival, which had earlier given the center $10 million for the naming rights to the concert hall, contributed an additional $10 million and received the naming rights to the entire center, now dubbed the Carnival Center for the Performing Arts.

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, which had awarded more than $3 million in grants to the center, contributed an additional $7 million more and received the naming rights to the symphony hall, now named the John S. and James L. Knight Concert Hall, according to the Miami Herald.

The performing arts center is scheduled for completion on August 4th, with a grand opening in October. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
