Our committee is working on fundraising for Heritage Days--particularly for the Draft Horse Show because we have to raise over $13,000 as prize money for the various classes in the Show. Tomorrow we are having a Ham & Bean Supper with Jake Hoult, a local young man who does a fantastic Elvis impersonation. so if you're in our area be sure to come out for a fun evening. The event was to be held at the Linn Park Amphitheater but the weather has turned cold with a possibility of rain so it has been moved to the Martinsville Community Center. Here's the flyer:
We are also asking local businesses and individuals to consider making a donation, or sponsor an event, to help us fund the Festival. For donations of $500 or more the sponsor/donor names will be listed on the martinsvilleheritagedays.com website, on the back of the program to be distributed at the Festival and on a banner to be displayed on the Fairgrounds and their names will be announced during the event they are sponsoring. If you would be interested in helping us with a contribution you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Then May 5 we are having a 10% Night Fundraiser at Texas Roadhouse. The Roadhouse will donate 10% of the cost of each person's meal who brings a flyer with our information to the Terre Haute Texas Roadhouse that afternoon/evening. It takes a lot of people eating there for this to be a very large amount but last year we felt the exposure/advertising we received as a result of having a table in the foyer made the fundraiser even more valuable.
Putting on a Festival of this caliber is a huge undertaking, but lots of fun, too, and so rewarding to be helping our community in the process!
