For many of us, Christmas is a time for celebrating, gathering with friends and family and giving. That was the mission of the recent Christmas Folk Party hosted during Thanksgiving weekend in downtown Plymouth. This event was created to benefit not only the 250 adults and children who enjoyed the fun-filled evening of music and art, it was also a fundraiser to benefit the local families in the community who are in need during this holiday season. On behalf of the inSPIRATIVE art center and The Midas Center who partnered to host this community event, the money raised will go directly to the Marshall County Neighborhood Center this week.
Special acknowledgment is shared with the generous sponsors who donated items and services to help make the fundraiser successful and include performer, Chad Van Herk, Heartland Artists, Herb Store, Imaginary Art School, Sisters' Tea and Eatery and The Laugh Out Loud Company.
The dollars raised during this event is a small amount of support in comparison to the growing needs of the Neighborhood Center which is currently serving an average of 1,200 - 1,500 individuals per month. For more information on how you can directly impact the local community, please contact the Center directly by calling 574-936-3388 and commit to sponsor one of the 55 families who are in need this Christmas season.
