Simpsonville Arts Foundation receives donation from local bank

The Simpsonville Arts Foundation was presented with a check for nearly $400 from Countybank, which were proceeds from a raffle during the Simpsonville Summer Music Concert & Food Truck rodeo this past summer. Tim Lincolnhol, Senior Vice President, of Countybank, presented the check to Wade Shealy, Executive Director, of SAFI.

Countybank was also the series sponsor for the free concerts, which were held at Heritage Park, July thru September. Although COVID 19 rearranged the season, through our partnership with the City of Simpsonville, we were able to move the venue to Heritage Park from Hendricks Pavilion, also known as the Tater Shed. This move allowed plenty of room for social distancing. Cindy Tench commented, “Through our efforts, and our partnership with the City of Simpsonville, we’ve been able to entertain thousands of people, but none so dear to my heart as when the local assisted living facility would transport their residents to the Elvis Tribute. The joy on their faces was immeasurable.”

‘This year has been a struggle, but we were extremely excited to have a more condensed season, and at Heritage Park where there was room to make everyone comfortable and safe!”, Cindy added.

Many thanks to Countybank and the City of Simpsonville for making these events as successful as they have been. We’re looking forward to another great season next year.
