Wilson Center works on finances
PITTSBURGH (AP) — A former judge who is overseeing attempts to stabilize the finances of Pittsburgh’s struggling August Wilson Center for African American Culture plans to seek more time for the effort.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Friday that retired judge Judith K. Fitzgerald plans to ask a court for more time at a hearing next week. Fitzgerald’s oversight is set to expire on Feb. 3.
The paper reported that Fitzgerald continues to meet with potential donors and that some local organizations are still booking events at the center.
The center will host special programs on Monday to celebrate Martin Luther King Day. Admission is free from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. but donations will be accepted.
Dollar Bank began foreclosure proceedings in September after the center defaulted on its $7 million mortgage.
