That’s a wrap on the GoodGiving Guide Challenge!

January 2, 2014

GoodGiving Guide Challenge 2013Something exciting is happening in our community and it is all because of YOU! The GoodGiving Guide Challenge was a huge success for the Community Arts Center. We could not be more thrilled at how you showed your support! From Nov. 1 through Dec. 31, 114 donors made 129 contributions raising $14,485 in support of the Community Arts Center’s education initiatives. Even more exciting is that this total does not include matching funds, like the Banker’s Challenge, the Buzzer Beater, and Lottie Ellis. We’ll find out the true total on Feb. 7 at the GoodGiving Guide Challenge wrap party.

For many children and adults, fulfillment will come on the stage, at the piano, or with a paint brush in hand.Thanks to our generous supporters, the Arts Center will continue to offer educational programs that reach more than 5,000 central Kentucky children each year.

You may recall that we awarded every donor during the Lottie Ellis Match Challenge a chance to win a private Starry Night Studio party for every $10 they donated. Now that the challenge has ended, we have randomly selected a winner: Janak Talwalkar. Congratulations Janak!

THANK YOU for making our first foray into the GoodGiving Guide Challenge a success! You can learn more about the programs your support makes possible by visiting our website, or contact me to schedule a visit to see what a difference you’re making.
