Most recent $24,473.76 grant represents VVCC fundraising efforts through donations, events and grants. Funds will be used exclusive for Western Gateway construction this fall and winter.
"In total, the VVCC exceeded its $75,000 Western Gateway fundraising goal" stated VVCC President Marty Glinsky. "This most recent grant, along with previous Western Gateway grants to the SRRTF totaling $49,633.33 and the direct purchase of Western Gateway signage material delivered to the RRRD ($3,589.10), means the VVCC has raised $77,696.19 for the Western Gateway" Glinsky added.
The Western Gateway is a 27+ mile multi-use trail system on National Forest land in West Sedona near the defunct Cultural Center. The Western Gateway is entirely community funded. "The VVCC's fundraising efforts have been amazing" stated Kevin Adams, SRRTF President. "The VVCC is our largest single Western Gateway Fundraising source" added Adams.
A huge thank you to all VVCC members, supporters and sponsors who made this success possible!
