Thanks for a GREAT Event!
Four great days of sunshine helped produce a GREAT Kempenfest 2015. But a few hours of horrible weather late Sunday afternoon managed to wreak havoc in a short few minutes. While a lot of exhibitors lost their tents – early warning helped them prevent losses to their products – and most importantly – no injuries were reported as a result of the wicked winds.
The storm did force us to cancel our Sunday concert with George Canyon. That has left us with a major deficit to overcome. We made a great start to covering that shortfall on Monday through the generous donations of folks attending The Martels concert. Just over $4,000 was collected toward our $30,000 shortfall.
We are working on a benefit concert to try to recoup the rest of our shortfall – we have reached out to George Canyon and hope to announce a make-good concert sometime this fall. The Martels have also offered to add one more event before they retire to help us out – maybe we can dub it their come-back tour LOL!
We are very fortunate to have so many great sponsors and supporters who in the end will help us recover.
