Lake Shore Savings Bank has renewed its support for the performing arts at SUNY Fredonia by returning as the season-wide sponsor for the Michael C. Rockefeller Arts Center.

The Dunkirk-based financial institution has made a $12,000 commitment to support programming for the 2023-24 season. Lake Shore Savings Bank was the first-ever corporate sponsor Rockefeller Arts Center and has long set the standard for corporate sponsorship in the local community. This is the 17th consecutive year the bank is serving as the RAC season-wide sponsor.

Originally chartered in 1891, Lake Shore Savings has grown to include 11 branches through Chautauqua and Erie counties. Its corporate headquarters are located at 131 East Fourth St. in Dunkirk.

Lake Shore’s 2023-24 commitment will support programs in the DFT Communication Pops Series, the Kaleidoscope Family Series, the Walter Gloor Mainstage Series of the Department of Theatre and Dance, the Hillman Opera and the Western New York Chamber Orchestra Classics Series. More information on these programs can be found online.
