Their combined efforts raised a little more than $5,000 to help support the Juneau Arts and Culture Center. We deeply appreciate it, and want to thank all all involved and all who came to enjoy the event for making it such a success.
We are also thrilled to have received, at that event, a contribution of $500 from Juneau CHARR (Cabaret, Hotel, Restaurant and Retailers) in support of the Center. The support for this facility makes a huge difference in Juneau!
