I Carnegie Hall 1990 Membership and Fund Raising Drive to Begin! May 1 marked the kick-off of the Carnegie Hall's, the areas educa- tional and cultural organization, an- nual membership and fund raising drive. This year's goal: $150,000! Money raised from the drive will be used for operating and programming costs, restoration work, and the en- dowment fund. "We're very excited about this year's drive," said Carne- gie President, Sue Sailor, "because we believe the 1990s will be a Ren- aissance decade for the hall. The ground work has been laid, an ac- tive calendar of live performances The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, May 3, 1990 11A $1 9 and classes has been scheduled and word of the hall is spreading fast." Preparations for the drive have been made through the Finance Committee headed by Wallace Westfeidt and Treasurer Martha Sams. To make giving even easier this year, VISA and MasterCard are now accepted at the Hall and a pledge system (with quarterly billing) is in place. "Now that the future of Carnegie Hall is secure, with a new lease -- including more land around the building itself for our future reiand- scaping plans -- from the State of West Virginia in process, we're very optimistic about the future of the Hall," indicated Executive Director of the hall, Vivian Conly. "This is such an extraordinary facility -- it has tre- mendous potential to improve the quality of life we enjoy in the Green- brier Valley and to have a very posi- tive impact on the economic devel- opment of the region." Many different levels of participa- tion in Carnegie Hall are offered. All donations to Carneg e Hall are tax deductible; all donations of $10 or more include membership in the or- ganization. "There are definite bene- fits to membership, for example: in- clusion on the mailing list (inoluding the bi-monthly Carnegie Hall News), discounts on season passes, and an invitation to the annual members' picnic," Ms Conly said.
