B Y B I L L L I V E LY Foundation President & CEO

The most successful capital campaigns in the history of American philanthropy have included in their chemistry, benchmarks quantifying their success and providing the impetus for continued progress. In this context, the next fourteen months will be among the most critical time in the operation of the campaign to build the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts. During this period, important benchmarks in the areas of design and construction, fundraising, financial management, communications and event production will need to be achieved in a timely sequence to proceed on schedule with the construction in late 2006 of the Center’s Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House and Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre. To address these opportunities and to focus the campaign’s resources and leadership in the most effective ways, the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts Foundation developed The Crescendo Plan, a strategic initiative embodying twenty-two sequenced action items, all of which need to be accomplished by the end of 2006. The word crescendo is a musical term indicating an increase in volume or intensity over a dedicated period of time. The Crescendo Plan articulates a dramatic increase in the intensity of the campaign to build the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts, including completion of the designs of the venues, construction of the Center’s underground parking facility, introduction of the Center’s logo and branding plan, production of extraordinary events this fall and beyond, celebration of groundbreaking and the beginning of construction, appointment of a qualified professional to manage the Center, and the generation of an additional $58 million in new gifts and pledges. The Crescendo Plan has three primary goals: to raise new gifts that will increase total funding to approximately 90% of the project’s total cost; to complete the designs of the venues, including the Winspear Opera House, Wyly Theatre, new Annette Strauss Artist Square, and Grand Plaza, and to construct the Center’s underground parking facility. Successful completion of The Crescendo Plan will position the campaign to advance on an accelerated schedule throughout the construction process, including the launch of the endowment component, implementation of the Center’s business plan and activation of preparations to open the venues concurrently in the fall of 2009. As we proceed with The Crescendo Plan, we do so with a profound appreciation for the more than 350 volunteers involved in the campaign and the seventy-four Dallas families and organizations who to date have made gifts of $1 million and above to help design and construct the Center. The campaign is on or ahead of schedule in all phases of its operation and The Crescendo Plan was designed to help us prepare for the construction phase of this important project.

MILLION DOLLAR DONORS ALON USA, DAVID WIESSMAN AND JEFF MORRIS Top executives of Alon USA, an oil refiner and marketer with headquarters in Dallas, have made supporting the arts the company’s philanthropic mission. Most recently, Alon USA’s gift of $1 million to the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts will help construct the Center and establish the company as the presenting sponsor of the Groundbreaking Ceremonies, November 10. “The private sector in advanced countries has assumed the responsibility to support the foundation of cultural projects,” said David Wiessman, Alon Israel Group’s President and CEO and leading shareholder, and Alon USA Executive DRESSING ROOMS STAGE AND FLY TOWER AUDITORIUM

facilities will bring world-scale stature to the Dallas Arts District. We felt we must support this project as much as we support world-scale arts in Tel Aviv and New York.” Jeff Morris, Alon USA’s CEO, said, “The arts are equally as important to a community as sports or other activities. Dallas needs pre-eminent artistic facilities. This is why I admire what the leaders of Dallas are doing and it is natural for us to join this once-in-a-lifetime effort.” “The generous $1 million gift from Alon USA to help build the Center and underwrite the groundbreaking ceremonies is a very generous and timely gift, and we are truly grateful,” said Howard Hallam, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts Foundation and coordinator of the Dallas Arts District. Mr. Wiessman, a native Israeli, supports the “Warm Home” program in Israel, which provides housing and care for displaced children. He is also a major supporter of the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra, the Israel Cancer Association, and provides a permanent art gallery for Israeli sculptors and painters in his headquarters. Mr. Morris, a native Texan, is a longtime supporter of Communities in Schools Dallas Region, in which Alon USA recently founded the CIS Endowment with a $1 million gift. Alon USA also supports the Trinity River Project. JEFF MORRIS AND DAVID WIESSMAN


Ceremony ACTOR TOMMY LEE JONES NAMED GUEST CELEBRITY FOR GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONIES Academy Award winner Tommy Lee Jones will join the Groundbreaking Ceremonies for the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts at 10:30 a.m., Thursday, November 10 on the Center’s future site on Flora Street. Mr. Jones has long ties to the city and will make special remarks about the importance of the Center to Dallas and the positive impact it will have here and throughout the region. “We are on the threshold of a magnificent change to the cultural landscape of Dallas. The groundbreaking ceremony will celebrate the commencement of this renaissance, while paying special tribute to those who helped to bring the vision of the Center and the splendor of the 25-year dream of the Dallas Arts District to life,” said Howard Hallam, Chairman of the Foundation’s Board of Directors and coordinator of the Dallas Arts District. “Having Academy Award-winning celebrity Tommy Lee Jones celebrating with us at this momentous occasion will make it even more remarkable. He is an outstanding actor with a true appreciation of the cultural arts in Dallas.” Mr. Jones was awarded the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his uncompromising portrayal of U.S. Marshal Sam Gerard in the box office hit The Fugitive in 1994. He also received a Golden Globe Award as Best Supporting Actor for this role. Three years before, he received his first Oscar nomination for his portrayal of Clay Shaw in Oliver Stone’s JFK. He recently directed and starred in the neo-Western, The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, which debuted in competition at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival and won Best Actor. Mr. Jones was born in San Saba, Texas and attended St. Mark’s School of Dallas. Key dignitaries, including U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, Mayor Laura Miller and Deputy Mayor Pro Tem Dr. Elba Garcia, will join Mr. Jones in making remarks about the Center’s impact on Dallas.


ON THE ARTS I am excited and honored to have been elected to the Dallas City Council representing District 14, home of the Arts District. We owe my predecessor, Veletta Lill, a debt of gratitude for her exceptional service on behalf of the arts, and I look forward to continuing her commitment to the arts community. Dallas will be transformed over the next decade, due in large part to the incredible changes underway in the Arts District. New and renovated venues, a remodeled Arts Magnet High School, new mixeduse development and a park over Woodall Rodgers are all on the horizon. What an incredible time to be in Dallas! Lastly, on behalf of the City of Dallas, I want to say thank you to the leadership, volunteers and supporters of the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts. They have been remarkably successful in garnering private support to reshape our Arts District, and we are deeply appreciative of your efforts. I look forward to working with you as we transform our great city. Councilwoman Angela Hunt’s column, “Update on the Arts,” will appear in each edition of Stages, the official newsletter of the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts Foundation.

Leading Roles MARIBESS MILLER Maribess Miller is playing a pivotal role in persuading the business community to become more involved in efforts to build the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts. Ms. Miller, who is office managing partner of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, believes strongly in the philosophy of corporate giving to worthwhile programs and projects. That is why she stepped up to be a founder of the Flagship Corporate Alliance, an initiative offering companies of all types and sizes an opportunity to participate in the early stages of the fundraising campaign for the $275 million performing arts center. Alliance Members contribute between $100,000 and $500,000, and the Alliance has already raised more than $2.6 million. “The Dallas Center for the Performing Arts is going to be a big driver of economic development,” she said. “Having world-class cultural facilities will put us in a different league as far as attracting new business.” Ms. Miller is a key supporter of the Center. She serves on the Governance, Operations and Management Committee, and the Development Committee of the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts Foundation, and offices directly across the street from the construction site. “Our company chose to be in the Trammell Crow Center partly because of all that will be happening in the Arts District,” she said.

MARTIN J. WEILAND Marty Weiland is one of the true veteran supporters of the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts Foundation. His service dates back to the days when a handful of people, including Kern Wildenthal, Bill Winspear, John Dayton, Bess Enloe and Deedie Rose, helped create the Foundation to raise funds for the performing arts center project. “It’s amazing to see what has been accomplished in the last four years,” he said. “I don’t know where else you could receive this level of private support for the arts.” As a board member, Mr. Weiland has played a key role in the Foundation’s efforts. He has served as Secretary of the Board of Directors, worked on the Governance, Operations and Management Committee and is a member of the Winspear Opera House Facilities Committee. As Chairman, President and CEO of Northern Trust, Mr. Weiland believes in the cultural arts as a strong economic generator for Dallas. He is Chairman of The Dallas Opera and credits local real estate legend Henry Miller Jr. for his longtime involvement in civic projects. Mr. Weiland also serves on the boards of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Dallas Arboretum, Science Place and Dallas Historical Society. NANCY STRAUSS HALBREICH Nancy Strauss Halbreich has worked on worthy causes and charitable events all of her adult life. Her mother, the late former Dallas Mayor Annette Strauss, served as a good role model. But Nancy has blazed out on her own, making a positive difference in important assignments that range from the presidency of Charter 100 to co-chairing the Neil Mallon dinner for the World Affairs Council. Despite a fast-paced busy schedule, she says her greatest rewards today are coming from her work with the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts Foundation. As a member of the Foundation’s Special Events Concept Committee, she is closely involved in preparations for the Center’s November 10 Groundbreaking celebration. “I think the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts is going to take this city to whole a new level,” Ms. Halbreich said. “The new Center will make Dallas a huge tourist attraction.” With a newly renovated Annette Strauss Artist Square part of the plans for the Center, she said she has a “vested interest” in the project’s success. But Ms. Halbreich is particularly pleased that the Center is reinvigorating Dallas’ “can do” spirit at a critical time in the city’s history.

DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT TERMS REACHED BETWEEN CENTER AND CITY On May 25, 2005, the Dallas City Council unanimously approved terms to be incorporated into the use and development agreements to be executed between the City and the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts Foundation. The agreements affirm the process by which the City and the Foundation will work together throughout construction of the Center and the ways the Center will be governed, managed, maintained, operated and supported by the City following its construction. The terms of the agreement are consistent with the way the City of Dallas currently supports the operations of other City-owned cultural facilities. “The Dallas Center for the Performing Arts is a wonderful gift to the people of this community,” said Dr. Elba Garcia, Dallas City Councilwoman and Mayor Pro Tem. “When the performing arts center is completed, Dallas will have the finest cultural arts facilities in the world. This is going to be a gathering place – not only for local residents, but for visitors from throughout the nation.” FOUNDATION PRESIDENT AND CEO BILL LIVELY AND DALLAS CITY COUNCILWOMAN DR. ELBA GARCIA.
