(Versailles, Indiana) — A crowdfunding campaign to create a music and entertainment space in Versailles has achieved its goal.
On May 9, Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch and the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) launched a $50,000 crowdfunding campaign.
The campaign, led by Versailles Main Street, had to raise $50,000 by July 10 to qualify for a matching grant through the IHCDA CreatING Places program.
As of June 17, the crowdfunding campaign has topped $51,000.
Funds from this campaign will be used to build the Holdsworth Entertainment Pavilion in honor of Gary and Patsy Holdsworth for their dedication as music directors at South Ripley’s schools.
It is planned that the pavilion will be built on the square in front of the courthouse, where two dilapidated houses once stood.
The pavilion will become a gathering place for live music, theatre, cinema and more.
As the crowdfunding goal was set, a new $60,000 goal was set. Additional funds will allow the park to purchase percussion instruments to create music for future generations.
