Benaroya Hall — more thanks to go around

What a lovely celebratory story on the 10th anniversary of Benaroya Hall. [“Happy birthday, Benaroya,” NWArts&Life, Sept. 7]. Benaroya owes its birth to many people — only some of whom were included in Tom Keogh’s story.

He failed to mention the hard work of the entire staff who helped raise many millions of dollars. He also forgot about the great work of the board and the two chairs during the campaign: Jean Gardner and Dorothy Fluke.

Most of all I was mystified by the lack of mention for Deborah R. Card, Benaroya’s former executive director, whose hard work and persistence allowed the hall to be completed for so many to enjoy.

— Sean G. Griffin, Seattle
