Delray Beach resident Jeffrey Stoops, chairman of the Kravis Center, recently announced that the performing arts hall’s capital campaign, Kravis 2020, was given a big boost.


The Raymond and Bessie Kravis Foundation has gifted $10 million to the expansion project. As a result, the center’s new urban plaza will be named the Kravis Family Plaza.


“Throughout the years, the Kravis family has continued their parents’ legacy of supporting the center through its foundation,” Stoops said. “Their steadfast commitment has played an important role in contributing to the cultural well-being of the community and in introducing us to artists who have not previously appeared in Florida. We are truly grateful that the family has continued such an outstanding tradition of support for the center and its mission.”
