In Memory of Carrie Blankfield

Carrie Blankfield was a dear friend and constant donor of the Palace Theater. In her usual unselfish way of life, one of her last requests was for her friends to make monetary donations to the Palace. We appreciate Carrie’s caring about the future of the theater and thank her friends for honoring her. She loved coming to both our movies and our live events, always with a smile and compliments to the Palace. Anyone who knew Carrie is invited to join in helping her memory live on at the theater. Please note on your donation that it is in Carrie’s memory.
