Testing new cars led to a big donation for the Evansville Civic Theatre.
The theatre was the recipient of D-Patrick’s charity of the month in October.
D-Patrick donated $10 for every theatre patron’s test drive.
Tuesday, D-Patrick presented a $2,500 check.
The staff at the theatre said the money will go to good use.
“This money is going to go a long way to help make those shows happen and help make improvements in the theatre. So we’re really excited to actually be able to use this towards the betterment of this theatre for our patrons,” said Managing Artistic Director Kevin Roach.
Roach said the test drives were also a great way to find out what other organizations do for local charities in the community.
