The Golden Belt Community Concert Association will host Musical Monday for Giving Tuesday. Musical Monday is a come-and-go event set for 7-9 p.m. Nov. 28 at the Best Western Angus Inn Courtyard giving supporters of the concert association an opportunity to donate to the GBCCA Endowment. These financial gifts will help continue the association’s heritage of offering quality, diverse musical performances to residents of Barton County and the surrounding area.
Peppermint punch and cookies will be served and door prizes will be given, including a Christmas wreath, a gift basket from Rosewood, and two framed 1954 posters signifying the rivalry of Kansas State University and the University of Kansas.
GBCCA is one of more than 40 nonprofit organizations participating in the Golden Belt Community Foundation’s Giving Tuesday efforts. The foundation has secured $40,000 of matching funds to be given proportionally to each organization based on the total amount raised.
Founded in 1937, the GBCCA’s vision is to enrich cultural awareness and appreciation of the performing arts for everyone in the communities served. Anyone who is not able to attend Musical Monday may mail or drop off a donation at the Golden Belt Community Foundation, 1307 Williams, Great Bend, KS 67530. All donations given this month will count toward the match opportunity.
In addition to its Great Bend office, the foundation will designate other locations in Hoisington, La Crosse, Larned and St. John to receive gifts on Giving Tuesday, Nov. 29, for any participating organization. The foundation was established in 1996 and exists to provide non-profit organizations in central Kansas with a permanent source of support and to serve as a vehicle for charitable giving for donors. The foundation serves the counties of Barton, Pawnee, Rush and Stafford. It manages more than 155 charitable funds.
