New incentives offered for Ebert sculpture donors

The head of the Roger Ebert Sculpture Fundraising Campaign has announced new incentives for donors.

The goal of the project is to place a life size statue of Ebert sitting in theater seats outside of the Virginia Theatre in Champaign.

Scott Anderson said until Friday, only donors of $10,000 or more would receive a small scale version of the statue.  But Anderson said now, some people who donate less than $10,000 can get a gift.



Anderson added that so far, the group has raised 20% of the funds needed for the project.

He made the comments Friday on A Penny for Your Thoughts on WDWS.
