Tomorrow evening, at the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art, ASC invites all supporters and friends to gather to learn the outcome of the 2011 Annual Fund Drive. This finale celebration marks the end to a whirlwind campaign year that began on January 19, with a goal to raise $8.3 million.
Each year we ask the community to come together to raise funds, that through ASC distributed grants, benefit more than 100 cultural institutions and programs throughout Charlotte-Mecklenburg. And, each year we are amazed to see the outpouring of support we receive from the community. It is apparent that a vibrant arts and cultural sector is important to those who live and work here.
To me, this is what makes Charlotte a special place to be. Residents take pride in their community and invest in organizations like ASC to ensure that Charlotte is a world class city. Did you know that 87% of all donations to ASC’s Annual Fund Drive are less than $250? Talk about strength in numbers!
Each and every gift that comes to ASC goes such a long way to support the health of the cultural sector, and ensures that the entire community has access to all this sector has to offer. Because your support is so integral to the success of the campaign, I hope you will join us tomorrow evening to celebrate its close. Details are below. We hope to see you there and THANK YOU so much for your support!
