Our non-profit client of the week focuses on a disease many believe no longer exists. Since their beginnings the American Leprosy Missions has ministered to four million people in 42 countries around the world, striving to end this disease once and for all.
Our non-profit client for this week has a mission that, as a local 38 year business ourselves, is near and dear to our hearts: to sustain the heritage and sense of place that is Asheville and Buncombe County through preservation and promotion of the unique historic resources of the region.
This week we salute our long-time non-profit client the Diana Wortham Theatre, a cultural and educational resource for our community hosting live performances of music, theatre and dance by national and international touring artists since 1992. The Theatre has also been available to a wide range of regional arts groups and organizations to present performances and events. In 2017/2018, over 40 organizations presented over 200 public events at Diana Wortham Theatre, including local favorites Terpsicorps Theatre of Dance, Asheville Performing Arts Academy, Asheville Lyric Opera, Ballet Conservatory of Asheville, Music Video Asheville, and YMCA of Western North Carolina.
When ABE marketing specialist Brenda Cooke realized she didn't need the brand new 65-cup coffee urn in her kitchen, she didn't have to look far for a recipient: ABE client/ non-profit Hendersonville Rescue Mission serves hot coffee to the homeless in their Day Center, just one of many services they offer to those in need.
