The Mickey and Frank LeGere Costume Fund
Established in June 2011 by George W. Newton, this fund was created in memory of Frank LeGere, father of RDT Artistic Director Mary LeGere. Frank and his wife Mickey were long-time supporters of the ballet and arts in the community. This gift to RDT was a venue for the LeGere’s friends to honor them by creating a financial legacy within the organization that their daughter has led for more than two decades.
Since 2011, Raleigh Dance Theatre has used the Mickey and Frank LeGere Costume Fund to create new costumes for Paquita, Firebird, The Seasons, Tea for Ruby, Fancy Nancy and the Mermaid Ballet, Where Memories Echo and Cinderella. In 2017, Mickey LeGere passed away, which prompted many new gifts made to the fund. We thank all who graciously supported Raleigh Dance Theatre in memory of Mickey and Frank.
