FOR THE LOVE OF ART—GIVE CARTHAGE
Please do your part for the love of art. Help artCentral build our Sustaining Fund that keeps artCentral strong and the arts alive and thriving.
Mark your calendar for this coming Tuesday, May 9, Give Carthage Day—your opportunity to join other Carthaginians in supporting artCentral and many Carthage non-profits that enhance the quality of life in this town we love and call home.
Online donations of $5 or more will help artCentral and an array of Carthage nonprofits to raise funds and to win additional matches and prizes. Throughout Tuesday, May 9, midnight to midnight, go to givecarthage.giveozarks.org and click on artCentral to enter your secure online donation.
Donations by cash or check may also be made in person on Tuesday, May 9, at Cherry’s Art Emporium on the Carthage Square from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm. Mother Road Coffee is generously providing coffee and goodies at Cherry’s for individuals stopping by to make a donation to support artCentral and any of the participating nonprofit agencies.
From the desk of artCentral’s board of directors president, Jackie Boyer:
“For over thirty years, artCentral has served as our community’s non-profit arts center, committed to a mission to promote, exhibit, teach and foster the appreciation of fine arts.
artCentral fulfills this mission by: hosting artist receptions and exhibitions; sponsoring a two-week artCamp for children with over forty class choices taught by art professionals (with scholarships available); conducting classes and workshops; exhibiting artwork at three satellite galleries for community enjoyment; publishing a quarterly newsletter with information about art in our community; and hosting a Holiday Boutique featuring artist-created gifts.
On May 9, artCentral will be participating in the Give Carthage Day fundraiser sponsored by the Community Foundation of the Ozarks and Carthage Community Foundation.
artCentral is reaching out to you to help us meet our goal of raising $20,000 for our Sustaining Fund. With your help we continue to grow, strengthen and sustain artCentral’s presence and programs in our community.”
I join with Jackie and all of artCentral’s board of directors, members and artists in extending our appreciation for your generous Give Carthage Day participation.
