Shop Franklin. Shop local. Support your local businesses. You hear it all the time. But most of the time, you don’t really think about it. That is until you need a donation for a fundraiser or a benefit. The local business community is by far the best when it comes to donations. Even with the economy being as tough as it is, local businesses never fail to support whatever fundraiser is happening, whether it is for school events, benefits for the sick or fundraisers for charitable organizations.
The Macon County Academic Foundation would like to thank all of the local businesses who donated to our recent fundraiser. We had an abundance of items donated even in these tough economic times. We sincerely appreciate the many restaurants who donated the BBQ and food for the dinner. We would also like thank all of the individuals who attended the event and supported us with their money. We always try to be mindful that this was hard earned money and try to be as careful as we can with spending it.
