You may have noticed how the quality and “big name” nature of The FORUM’s entertainment offerings continues to improve. This is not pure chance. It is thanks to the generosity and support of Sponsors in The FORUM Playbill and Friends of The FORUM.
Together, donations from Sponsors and Friends represents 50% of our entertainment budget. Yes – 50%! Without their support – without YOUR support – The FORUM would not be able to bring you the line-up we offer this coming year: Melissa Manchester, The Drifters, The Crystals, The Platters, The Four Freshmen, and “Elvis Presley” (actually, his cousin).
Sponsors are our friends and neighbors in the retail, commercial and health community around town: Opulence, Martha Gentry’s Home Selling Team, Southern Prime Steakhouse, Whit Lauter by Leann Parker, Pinehurst Resort, Crossroads Ford, St. Joseph of the Pines, First Health, Wells Fargo Advisors, James R. McDermott, CPA, The Laser Institute, and State Farm. We encourage you to support these great organizations.
Equally important to the success of The FORUM – and the joy that our unique mix of entertainment, fine dining, and camaraderie brings to our members – are the Friends of The FORUM. Over 100 members of The FORUM supported our organization last year as Friends of the FORUM, representing nearly a third of our total membership. To them, as to our Playbill Sponsors, we say THANK YOU.
You should know that 100% of these donations go to securing the best acts we can find for your entertainment. The FORUM is a totally volunteer membership organization, with no overhead. The policy of The FORUM will continue to be: the more funds we raise, the bigger the names we will secure for your entertainment pleasure.
So again, THANK YOU for your support and your contributions. Please continue to be a Friend of The FORUM. Please continue to be a Sponsor in the Playbill and The Pinehurst FORUM will continue to be a unique and precious part of your Pinehurst experience.
