$12,500 Awarded to The Castle

For Event #9 on March 19, 2017, the 100+Men Who Care awarded $12,500 to a local educational program - The Castle. In 2011, The Castle was the outcome of many sessions and the inspiration of teachers, artists, and community members to offer free workshops in partner schools to maximize the opportunity for creative problem-solving and nurture self-expression for kids. Beth Benedix, Director of The Castle, reports on the organizations website (www.castlearts.org) “Our pilot program was launched in January 2012 in one elementary school…currently the Castle serves approximately 1200 kids in 4 partner schools.” “Our goal is to serve every kid in all four districts of Putnam County.”
