Thanks to generous friends at Bethany Village, we are excited to announce that the fundraising for Phase II of the Building Our Community Campaign is complete. A special celebration
was held in September, and groundbreaking at the Central Pennsylvania community is set for December.
Through the hard work of the Bethany Village Campaign Leadership Committee and several gracious donors, including a $24,000 gift and a
$38,000 Matching Gift Challenge provided by Dr. William and Judy Higgins, the campaign reached its goal in July.
In light of the Matching Gift Challenge, committee co-chair Dale Meadowcroft likened the task of “getting to the finish line” to climbing Mount Everest! Dale shares, “Like Everest, Building Our Community initiatives are long-term. However, a major difference is the after effect: we climb as a community. The result is the Rife Center (Phase I of the campaign), a Bistro (Phase II of the campaign), and funds for projects that will come to fruition in the generations after us.”
