Marie DresslerIn preparation for the 150th anniversary of Marie's birth right here in Cobourg, the Marie Dressler Foundation is investing in the creation of a new "Marie Dressler Exhibition".

Planning is well underway.  The concept and design work has been completed by students and staff at University of Toronto Museum Studies Masters Program.  We have received a significant funding grant from the federal Canada150 program. 

Corporate and personal donations have been generous to date.  We are now over half-way to our goal of raising $100,000. to build the new Exhibition at Marie Dressler House, 212 King St. W., Cobourg.

We need your help to cross the finish line and get the Exhibition in place in 2016.

Please consider giving what you can to help Marie with her new Exhibition.  Donate online here.

All donations of $20. or more will receive a CRA donation receipt.
