We made it!

Yes folks, the Cultural Alliance hit its 2011 goal! And to add to the excitment, we exceed the $1.16 millon goal and (drum roll please) reached $1.25 million on the last day of 2011.

Can you imagine reaching this goal which serves the arts-creative-cultural sector AND doing so in this down economy? What a spectacular acheivement anywhere, but in a town of just 44,000 and county of 400,000, this is remarkable. NO wonder York is envied across the United States.

To thank Larry Miller,CEO of PeoplesBank and John Klinedinst, President of C.S. Davidson is to understate. They are true leaders who inspired 300 solicitors to make their calls. What can I say? They are wonderful.

What a way to start our 2012 campaign, Create Community. Larry and John have raised the bar and with their results and urged us on as an Arts Army to do more for the creative community in York. We can do it!
