The Cedar Pulls Through

15 Dec

Around Thanksgiving, a video started making the rounds from the Cedar Cultural Center, our local non-profit performing arts venue. Like all non-profits, the big question for the Cedar at the end of the fiscal year was making ends meet and the Cedar was looking at a shortfall. As we posted earlier, there had been a number of high profile shows that had been canceled, like Aar Maanta and Staff Benda Bilili, which were out of the Cedar’s control but also damaging to the bottom line.

Fortunately though, things seem to be looking up for the Cedar. Michael Rossetto, a musician formerly of Spaghetti Western String Company and now of The Bello Duo, who is also the Marketing Coordinator at the Cedar, reported that on the Novemeber 16th Give To The Max Day, the Cedar raised over $50,000 and with the help of its’ donor and volunteers, the Cedar looks to be pulling through. Rossetto wrote via e-mail;

“By the end of 2011 we should be back on track which would mean 4 straight years of growth for us as an organization and we owe that to our patrons, donors and artists who help us fill the room each night. It’s disheartening to see many arts non-profits in the Twin Cities struggle during these times, but rest assured that The Cedar isn’t going anywhere anytime soon and in the coming year(s), we will be expanding our organization on all fronts.”

Rossetto promises more exciting growth for the Cedar coming up in 2012, and we’re more than happy with the fact that they’re not going anywhere anytime soon.
