2013 Annual Appeal Campaign Gets Underway
As of November 1, we're less than $10,000 away from receiving a $40,000 matching grant! Please help us reach our goal by making your donation today!
Kenan Center’s 2013 annual appeal is currently underway. We are most fortunate to have the opporunity of receiving a matching grant thanks to the Grigg-Lewis Foundation, but we need your help in meeting or surpassing our goal of $40,000.
This years Co-chairs are Don and Jane Corser. We are so pleased to have them on board to lead this year’s appeal. Don is a current member of the Buildings & Grounds committee and Jane is President of the Kenan Arts Council. Both have been terrific supporters of the Kenan Center for more than 20 years. Jane and Don understand the role that every Kenan supporter plays in both giving financially and volunteering their services.
The Corsers returned to Lockport in 1995 and started enjoying theatre performances and craft shows held at the Kenan Center. It was only when their schedules allowed for more free time, that they were properly introduced to the Kenan Center. Joining the Kenan Arts Council provided a means of integrating into the community and meeting a whole new group of people with great and varied interests. It was then that Jane and Don realized how lucky our community and its surrounding region is to have such a wonderful treasure. For the Corsers, the Kenan Center is a family affair. They have witnessed the enrichment of the very young in our community with their grandson attending Kenan Center’s Kindermusik and Preschool programs. They have enjoyed adult activities at the Kenan Center including gallery exhibitions, crafts shows, and everything in between. As the Corsers noted: “The more we know the Kenan, the more we realize the continued success of this facility is due to the dedication of the staff and its volunteers.”
