Thank you for your participation in our 3rd Annual Triad CW 20 Party on the Plank. Our final Friday night finished with a bang to the music of Part Time Party Time Band. More than 650 people came out to listen and dance the night away to their favorite beach classics. Thanks to your efforts, we raised almost $5,000 for our sponsoring non-profit, Nia Community Action Center. None of this would have been possible without your help.

Elijah Lovejoy, High Point

On behalf of the Piedmont Blues Preservation Society, thank you so much for your generosity and sponsorship for the 26th Annual Carolina Blues Festival, presented by YES! Weekly.

Once again your recommendation to the lineup was a home run. Hell, it was a grand slam.

Eric Gales was amazing as we knew he would be.

Most of all I want to thank you for your abiding love of the music, particularly blues. It is so nice to work with a kindred spirit such as yourself.

I can hardly wait to see who we collaborate on bringing in for number 27 next May!

Charles, thank you again. Your support means so much to all of us.

John Amberg, Greensboro
