Late last week, ASC kicked off the 2013 Make Your Mark Campaign, announcing a goal of $8.2 million. The campaign supports investment in more than 100 arts, science, history and heritage organizations and programs, individual artists and education programs.
This year, Linda Lockman-Brooks, ASC board chair and president of Lockman-Brooks Marketing Services and Kevin Patterson, ASC board member and retired IBM executive are co-chairing the campaign. Civic leaders Jim and Mary Lou Babb are serving as honorary co-chairs.
“This campaign is about ensuring organizations such as Children’s Theatre of Charlotte, Levine Museum of the New South and Discovery Place have the financial resources they need to operate and serve the community,” said Lockman-Brooks. “In addition, these dollars support cultural education programs in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, arts, science and history projects in neighborhoods, the development of regional artists and festivals across the county that educate, entertain and enrich the lives of residents and visitors. Through the collective spirit of community giving, I know we can reach the goal.”
ASC will invest $12.5 million in the cultural sector this fiscal year. Here are some ways we are making our mark…[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64UKlDzjn1k&w=560&h=315]
