Lexington Children's Theatre producing director Larry Snipes was on his own stage Thursday afternoon to receive a $25,000 check for finishing in the top 100 of Chase's Community Giving Competition on Facebook.
The competition, in December, had not-for-profit organizations across the country competing for votes through the online social-networking site.
Many Kentucky groups participated, but LCT was the only one to finish in the top 100. That sent it to the next round: a competition for $1 million.
That competition was won by Invisible Children, an organization fighting child slavery in Africa.
Never miss a local story.
Snipes said that LCT was top vote-getter among theaters.
