From The Saporta Report, Oct. 18, 2012:
"Anderson did however announce another major initiative he has agreed to co-chair with Paul Garcia, the CEO of Global Payments. Both of them will head up an effort to raise money for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra so it won’t continue to face an annual deficit.
Garcia said the goal is to have a three-year campaign that would raise between $3 million and $3.5 million a year to put the ASO on a sound financial footing. The symphony has been losing about $5 million a year for the past several years, and a new contract with musicians is resulting in an annual savings of about $2.4 million a year."
