Glenn Beck, a nationally known personality and author, came to the Worm Creek Opera House on Thursday evening as a fundraiser for the Franklin County Theatre Arts Council.
“He came to the theater and watched a movie a few weeks ago before the digital upgrade,” said theater board member Paul Swainston. “He offered to help us with a fundraiser.”
The two worked out the details, set the date and the event sold out the day it was announced.
Beck recently purchased a residence in the Weston area and periodically can be seen in the surrounding communities.
Even before he started his informal talk he received a standing ovation. He told of why he came to Idaho. He said he is treated like everyone else when he visits the community, is not treated like a celebrity and he appreciates that. He told the crowd since he has been in the area he has had an opportunity to drive a tractor and cut a hay field, something he hasn’t done before.
“This community reminds me of a small town where I grew up in Mt. Vernon, Wash.,” he said. At the end of his presentation he opened things up for a question and answer session.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Worm Creek Opera House.
Beck is known for his quick wit, candid opinions and engaging personality. He has attracted millions of viewers and listeners throughout the United States with “The Glenn Beck Program.”
Beck’s radio talk show is heard on over 400 stations and is syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks. It is the third highest-rated national radio talk show among adults ages 25 to 54.
