2013 - Ending with a Bang
What a remarkable year 2013 was - our first full year of operation. With all the enthusiasm, energy, financial support and participation of so many, the dream of a vocal competition is closer to reality. Some of the highlights of the past year are:
- Logo finalized with the wonderful work of designer Peter Benson
- Competition venue finalized after much searching & discussion
- Website finalized & put up in May, designed by 18 East
- Terrific 1st Founders Event in May at Piedmont Piano Company
- IRS approval of our 501 (c) (3) status in late June
- 1st application deadline yielded 93 submissions from singers
- Attained 99 new donors
- And, in a final twelve hour push on December 31 2013, we exceeded our fundraising goal of $30,000!
Many, many thanks to our marvelous donors, volunteers and board of directors for this exciting year, we are looking ahead to a Happy 2014!
