UNI's Gallagher-Bluedorn gets $500,000 birthday gift

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) - In honor of the 10th birthday of the Gallagher- Bluedorn Performing Arts Center at the University of Northern Iowa, two of its namesakes, Ed and Cathy Gallagher, are celebrating with a gift of $500,000 for its benefit.

The gift will be used to establish the Edward and Catherine Cassidy Gallagher Endowment for the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center.

The endowment supports artistic programming, equipment needs and other projects.

Ten years ago, the Gallaghers contributed $1 million to help build the Center, which was named in their honor and in honor of the late Carl Bluedorn and his wife, Peggy.
