Bruce McKenzie, Director of Marketing and Communication at Edison State Community College and Matt Buehrer, local Thrivent Financial Associate each presented a check for $5,000 in support of the Canal Music Fest. JJ Slanker, Canal Music Fest Chair, accepted the checks on behalf of the event and said, “We are so fortunate to have this type of support from area leaders. We certainly could not do this without them”.
This is not the first time that these two organizations have supported the Canal Music Fest. Both were presenting sponsors in 2015.
TCAAC President Andrew White commented, “On behalf of the Tipp City Area Arts Council, I would like to thank Edison State Community College and Thrivent Financial Associate Matt Buehrer, as well as all other sponsors, vendors and volunteers for the support that has enabled us to host and to grow the Canal Music Fest year after year.”
