COMMUNITY FOUNDATION PARTNERS WITH MCA’S APPLAUD THE ARTS

TO CREATE MATCHING GIFT FUND FOR Marion Disaster Recovery Network


The Community Foundation for Ocala Marion County is honored to partner with Marion Cultural Alliance in supporting local Hurricane Irma recovery efforts.   MCA has announced that 50% of ticket sales from the 10th Annual Applaud the Arts event will be donated to the Marion Disaster Recovery Network to assist our citizens impacted by Hurricane Irma.


Through the generosity of our board members and donors, the Community Foundation has established a Matching Gift Disaster Recovery Fund that will match up to $5000 of the generous donations raised by MCA through this their signature event that this year will also pay tribute to all first responders, linesmen and law enforcement officers.  


Founding Chairman Frank Hennessey of Hennessey Arabians noted that “in keeping with our mission of community building through philanthropy, we are honored to be an integral partner with MCA in community outreach through the creative power of the arts”.


Join us on Thursday, September 28th in “INSPIRING, SUPPORTING, AND BRINGING TOGETHER Ocala/Marion County while it recovers from Irma”.
