Gifts Roundup: $10 Million From Ex-Kohl’s Chief to Gulfshore Playhouse

Jay Baker, the former president of retail company Kohl’s, and his wife, Patty, pledged $10 million to help pay for a new theater complex in Naples, Fla. The Bakers stipulated that Gulfshore officials must raise an additional $10 million from other donors to receive the entire pledged amount.

The new theater is scheduled to open in 2019.

The couple have backed Broadway musicals such as the Tony-winning “Memphis” and are long-time arts donors.
