CANCELLED – BEST OF BOTH FESTIVAL
As the Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/ Douglas County (CAC) continues to monitor Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments closely, the health and well-being of our community and members is of utmost importance to us. With that, after much consideration, sadly the CAC has decided to cancel The Taste of Douglasville/Chili Cook Off (Best of Both) scheduled for October 17th.
As the pandemic has halted businesses throughout the State, nonprofits and arts are taking a hard hit. The CAC, a nonprofit organization, had to cancel 2 out of 3 of the largest fundraising events due to the pandemic this year. These cancellations not only make a negative impact on the CAC’s revenue but an impact on artists whose sole income is based on commissions and performances. We are now calling for our community to stand up for when “You Can’t Save the Date—Save the Arts” funding campaign to support the arts center.
The CAC is calling all heroes to make a donation to support the programs, arts education, public art, and events in the community. Every dollar makes a difference and every dollar brings us closer to the goal of $30,000. Special benefit levels will be offered with marketing opportunities and incentives.
SAVE THE DATE: May, 15, 2020 11 am – 5 pm
