As published in the Atlanta Business Chronicle on Dec. 15, 2017

The Woodruff Arts Center will be able to continue its Family Fun programming over the next three years thanks to a new philanthropic grant.

The Lettie Pate Evans Foundation, which is part of the Robert W. Woodruff family of foundations, has awarded the Woodruff Arts Center an extension grant of $5.1 million to allow Family Fun to continue – offering free access to music, visual arts and theater for another three years.
