Local man won't leave bucket until funds are raised

PRINCETON (WVVA) -- A Mercer County man is raising the stakes for a local landmark.

Community Connections director, Greg Puckett, took his position high over Mercer Street in a bucket from Sexton Signs at noon on Saturday.

He says he's not leaving until the community pledges $10,000 to fund work on the Renaissance Theater. 

"This may seem a little crazy, but it's really about giving back to your community," says Puckett. "We know it's crazy, but it's a great way to show your support and do something generous."

The campaign is part of a downtown revitalization project coordinated by Princeton Renaissance. 

To donate, call Greg Puckett at 304-922-2551 or visit www.princetonrenaissanceproject.org.  He says anyone who donates will receive special Princeton Renaissance gear.
