This week Wells Fargo focuses its month-long Community Support Campaign on the great impact that the Arts & Science Council has on our community. Within the walls of Wells Fargo offices across our region, team members are learning that by giving to ASC they can help make Charlotte a better place to live, work and raise a family.
I stood at an ASC table in the Wells Fargo Atrium yesterday afternoon with local fiddler/guitarist/drummer extraordinaire Bob Ennis to talk to employees about ASC – it didn’t hurt that I was offering a chance to win free tickets to see a Broadway Lights show at the Blumenthal.
I was so pleased at the response of Wells Fargo employees to our information table and of course to Bob the fiddler as his whimsical songs bounced throughout the vaulted ceilings of the Atrium. Some people stopped to watch him, some clapped as they passed, many craned their necks as they went up the escalator to the second floor.
For a variety of reasons, my 90 minutes with Bob the fiddler was well spent and I feel confident knowing that those people who were affected went back to their computers and made their appreciation known by supporting our community through a gift to ASC. And for that we are so grateful.
If you are under 40-years-old and a Wells Fargo employee, please join us tonight from 5:30-7:30PM at The Mint Museum for Wells Fargo’s Young Donor Event to learn more about becoming involved!
