2021 Philanthropy Magnified Reception – Concert

CRS Barn Studio
2622 N. Triphammer Road
Ithaca, NY 14850

This outdoor location has established experience providing event space adhering to pandemic safety protocols.

Community Foundation Board of Directors announce Philanthropy Magnified Reception.  This annual event recognizes donors who support the Foundation with $1,000 or more as members of the Philanthropy Magnified Society.  HEROES Circle members have designated their gifts to the annual fund programs and services, where needed most. We also proudly honor the commitment and intentions of those who have joined the Legacy Society, who have informed us of a forever planned gift, at this reception as well.  It is a pleasure to connect the passions of donors with results-oriented solutions addressing the needs and problems in our community.

Thank you for your generosity!

While space will be limited with social distancing practiced and attendance is by invitation, please feel free to invite a friend.

Attend this special reception, just for you, to thank YOU and to share the impact and results of your philanthropy.

Enjoy conversation and pandemic savvy refreshments, with live music by Triphammer Arts in a casual outdoor setting overlooking Cayuga Lake, a unique blending of the arts and agriculture.  Program will begin at 5:30pm.  Outdoor stage with lawn chair seating (provided).

Triphammer Arts: “Triphammer Arts Inc is delighted to present an engaging program of music and dance that showcases who we are and how we work in the arts community, organized and produced by Executive Director Steven Stull and Board President Jeanne Goddard. We are best known for our collaborations across disciplines, the friendly, low-cost, and accessible nature of our productions, the beauty of our surroundings,  and the wide range of performance styles and genres we have presented over the last 30 years.

Musicians Lynn Craver (soprano), Steven Stull (baritone), Rick Manning (fiddle/mandolin), Dave Davies (guitar), Peter Chwazik (bass) and Richard Montgomery (piano), will offer selections from music theatre and popular song, and well-known tunes from their famous “Opera Cowpokes” production, while dancers Jeanne Goddard, Risa Lieberwitz, Karen Koyanagi, Shayna Grajo, Ksenia Ionova, and Olive Prince perform Goddard’s choreography – including a brand new piece, “Ten Days by the Sea,” created during a recent trip to Cape Cod.”

Food service by 100 Mile Cafe:  The 100 Mile Café is a collaboration between Christa Nunez from The Learning Farm and Jeff Furman, a founder of Community Foundation.  The 100 Mile Café is committed to using ingredients that are locally sources within a 100 mile radius of Ithaca.  “Our ingredient exception is spices.  We believe that just with having different spices and different cooking styles, we can make delicious cuisine that uses local ingredients, but provides the diner a global experience. We are at the beginning stages of development, but use the tag line, “GROW LOCALLY, EAT GLOBALLY.’  We believe that human beings are basically similar except its spices (different cultures, different life experience, etc. that add that special difference that we should honor.  As Audre Lord eloquently pointed out: ‘It is not our differences that divide us.  It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.’”  Is there a better way to demonstrate that than an evening of art, music, food and community?
