Jack White Saves Detroit Music Venue with (Previously) Anonymous Donation

Jack White made a hefty donation to help save the Detroit Masonic Temple, a popular venue in the Michigan city. Last month, the venue received an anonymous donation of $142,000 in order pay off its outstanding tax bill. Turns out the donor was Jack White, who has performed at the Temple a number of times, and whose mother was an usher there when he was a child.

Roger Sobran, the Temple’s president, has announced that the venue’s theater will be renamed the Jack White Theater in his honor.
