A Dallas based oil company is donating $150,000 to the City of Lubbock for the Mackenzie Amphitheater.
Alon-Fina will present a check at Thursday's City Council meeting. Park and Recreation planners say they have enough money to start building the $2.3 million dollar facility. $1.7 million is coming from the bond money passed by voters and the other half is coming from private donations.
Right now the city does not have the funds to build the entire facility, so they plan to stretch the project out and complete it in phases. Construction is expected to begin in October.
