Little Rock’s Dreamland Ballroom Receives $499,668 African American Civil Rights Grant

Historic 100 year old ballroom frequented by the legends of African American entertainment, wins a major grant to help make the venue handicap accessible. Read the full release from PRWEB or AR Democrat Gazette.

However, Dreamland's future still depends on you…

The Ballroom still needs your help. The grant was substantial and an amazing first step to accomplishing our goal of handicap accessibility to the 3rd floor ballroom. But the Dreamland Ballroom Public Access Project is far from over. The grant funds plus a large donation from a sponsor wishing to stay anonymous, will allow us to complete “Phase 1.” Phase 1 includes the brick addition to the west side of Taborian Hall, the 4-stop elevator shaft, & fire stair. “Phase 2” will bring the actually elevator, new windows for the 3rd floor, central heating & air, and a paved parking lot with landscaping.

This second phase is where we still need your help! We hope you’ll donate generously to the completion of this historic space. It’s well past time for everyone to party in the Dreamland Ballroom, don’t you think? Below you can make a general pledge of any amount…

Or Buy your brick to immortalize your supportive effort with an inscribed sidewalk paver. Then, become an Elevated donor. These contributors will have their names inscribed on a marble, honorary plaque in the vestibule of the new elevator addition.
