SPRING 2012 CONCERT SERIES
The 2012 Vista After 5 concert series has been cancelled due to the lack of corporate sponsorship. For the past fourteen years, our dedicated group of volunteers have produced hundreds of free concerts in the Columbia Vista district without using a single dime of taxpayer, city, or state funds. We also have never charged the public an entry fee to any of these shows.
It is expensive to produce these events and we have relied solely or corporate sponsorships and personal donations to fund them. We are very grateful to our past sponsors, donors, and the charitable organizations that have helped us with our volunteers and marketing efforts.
The Vista After 5 series was created in 1997 by a group of dedicated volunteers and has contributed many thousands of dollars to local charitable organizations. In the beginning, we had two primary goals; a) to provide a fun Thursday evening social event in Columbia that is free and open to all people, and b) have the proceeds and sponsorships of these events support local charities. We certainly have accomplished the first goal, but for the past couple of years, our ability to contribute to charities has dwindled. We feel it is not fair to everyone involved to continue on this basis.
We will use this season to attempt to cultivate more sponsors and raise funds for next year's season. If you or your company would like to benefit from the exposure of the city's largest and longest running concert series, please click here to send us your contact information. If you are an individual who has enjoyed these free concerts and would like to see them continue next year, please send your check in any amount you would like to the address below.
