Starr's Guitars has issued a challenge to area arts enthusiasts to encourage support for the new Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center (GMAEC). Through April 15, the Cedaredge-based business will match all GMEC donations up to $10,000. For the last several months, Starr's has joined with other businesses and individuals to promote the new non-profit facility. Fundraising efforts to support the nonprofit center are continuing on track with the goal of hosting first performances in June.
Contributors can make a lump sum donation or participate in a pledge program to spread their donation out over time. To donate, contact GMAEC by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or drop off donations at Starr's Guitars, 250 West Main Street in downtown Cedaredge. Or mail contributions to GMAEC, PO Box 583, Cedaredge, CO 81413. Or donate online at the non-profit organization's website: grandmesaartscenter.com.
