The Orange County Performing Arts Center earned a record amount in box office receipts over the last 12 months, with the nonprofit also setting personal records in attendance and charitable donations.
Center officials announced the numbers Thursday afternoon at their annual members meeting. During the 2006-07 fiscal year, the center netted $22.2 million in ticket revenues, due in large part to the opening of two massive new venues: the Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall in September and the Samueli Theater in October.
In addition to ticket sales, the Center Fund raised a record $10.8 million in contributions from the community, and the center's endowment fund reached a new high of $44.5 million. The total attendance for all performances during the year was 610,632.
