Viva la AtwoodFest!
The organizing team of SASYNA, Wil-Mar and SARA, the non-profit arm of the Barrymore, would like to extend our heart-felt thanks to friends, neighbors, and local businesses for banding together to make AtwoodFest 2014 a resounding success. In addition to being AtwoodFest’s presenting sponsor, our newest neighbor, Monona State Bank also contributed to our team of over 150 community volunteers that pitched in to, set up stages and canopies, pour libations for a thirsty crowd, supervise the occupants of inflatable houses, and give AtwoodFest a unique vibrancy.
Enticing smells from a wide array of food vendors wafting through the crowd, the sounds of vendors and their customers politely discussing the price of particular items, and live music from over 20 bands on 3 stages (including one just for kids) combined to create an atmosphere encouraging laughter, new friendships and community spirit by the bucket-load.
"Encouraging" also describes the outpouring of support for AtwoodFest'sTop 20 Eastside Eats and Union Theater Show Raffle. Those of you who bought or sold tickets are responsible for over $10,000 in contributions to emergency food programs at the Goodman Community and Wil-Mar Neighborhood Centers. We’d like to thank Goodman who, after years of success with Atwood Summerfest, generously provided an opportunity for neighborhood and neighborhood organizations, supported by the surrounding business community, to pull together and continue the tradition.
Last but certainly not least, thank you to all of you who came out and joined in the celebration of our great neighborhood. Viva la AtwoodFest!
