November 19, 1995|By Jenny Komatsu | Jenny Komatsu,CONTRIBUTING WRITER

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra kicked off its Annual Fund Campaign Nov. 1 with a gala event at the Diamond International Galleries in Timonium. Stephen A. Geppi, the president and CEO of Diamond Comic Distributors Inc. and BSO board member, was host. The goal is to raise $3.75 million for the 1995-1996 season.

Less than half the orchestra's income comes from performance fees and ticket revenue. The remainder must be sought through government support and private contributions. The Annual Fund Campaign raises approximately 20 percent of the BSO's budget.

The recently completed 1994-1995 campaign raised more than $3.6 million from 9,780 donors. Those interested in making a donation should call (410) 783-8024.
