The new year has started with a bang for Heritage Hall Theatre in Johnson County, Tenn. In January, the Johnson County Community Foundation voted unanimously to establish a $10,000 Challenge Matching Grant for the Heritage Hall Capital Fundraising Campaign.
Within two weeks, the challenge was met and then exceeded by the Mountain City community. This goal was only surpassed thanks to the generosity of many companies and individuals in the community. The Heritage Hall Capital Fundraising Campaign was created to raise funds for a new state of the art sound system that is currently in phase one of installation by Sweetwater Sound Inc. The cost of the sound system will exceed $70,000.
“On behalf of everyone on the board, we want to thank our sponsors, patrons, and our community for supporting us over the last 15 years. This project has been a long and drawn-out process, but when we finally present this investment to our community, it will all be worth it,” said Vice President Chase McGlamery.
The JCCF is a permanent community endowment dedicated to connecting caring donors with community needs and opportunities to enrich lives and strengthen communities in Johnson County. Since 2001, JCCF has given millions of dollars in gifts and scholarships to organizations and students of Johnson County. Their donation to Heritage Hall is a prime example of the way they better the community.
Incentives to individuals and promotional benefits to companies are being offered for participation in this campaign.
