$101,000 for BSO:
The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra raised $101,000 from 610 donors on Symphony Sunday and on Monday night this week, making its goal and keeping on track for its August annual giving goal of $2,600,000, Patricia Purcell, director of development, reported. The amount was just below the $104,000 gained in last year's one-day campaign. The BSO has raised about $1,375,618 so far in 1990-91. The amount represents funds given outside of ticket and subscription sales. The BSO plans to raise $3 million in 1991-92.
