Central City Opera Gala


Barbara H. Ferguson and the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation

Ms. Ferguson is being honored for her longstanding commitment to Central City Opera, her financial support to the organization and many volunteer hours, including her involvement in founding the CCO Guild. Barbara was the first President of the CCO Guild, which celebrates its 40th Anniversary in 2014.

The Bonfils-Stanton Foundation, which was created from the estates of May Bonfils-Stanton and Charles E. Stanton has been a generous contributor to Central City Opera over the years. When they were alive, May provided funding to establish the garden and terrace linking the Teller House to the Opera House, and Ed lent his considerable design expertise to restoration of Victorian authenticity in the public rooms of the Teller House. The Foundation has multiplied their generosity, most notably with important grants to name and sustain CCO’s artists training program.
