Jack White lends helping hand to Detroit

By  |  0 Comments

Detroit’s Masonic Temple, the largest of its kind in the world, was foreclosed on in April after $150,000 owed in taxes to the city of Detroit. The foreclosure of this beloved architectural marvel caught the attention of Jack White, rock musician who grew up in Motor City. His mother had once worked at the temple as an usher when she was having trouble with employment, and he even performed there with his band, The White Stripes. He asked how he could help and told the lawyer providing counsel to the temple’s board of directors that he wanted to pay off the bill. White made an anonymous donation of $142,000, and the Scottish Rite Cathedral Theater is in the process of being renamed the Jack White Theater in his honor.

Well, obviously it's an online magazine.
