2008 Heritage Fest Report On Line

You can read the entire report here, which includes a complete breakout of revenues and expenses.  Overall, a great award winning mid year event for DG.  Expenses ran past revenues, and it is examined with some recommendations.

Items in need of rethinking:

  • The Thursday night benefit concert drew fewer than 900 attendees compared to 2007’s 2,900.  By any standard a precipitous drop, event organizers learned the band is critical.  2007’s Gin Blossoms were no longer a top act, but were well known; 2008’s Vertical Limit was a late 90’s one hit wonder that was not well known.
  • The parking garage needed police help, and seemed a bit of a stretch for any charity group to handle.  Only one group even applied in 2008, despite earning over $$5,200.
