Letter to the Editor
Friday, Jan. 17, 2014, 8:57 p.m.

Thanks to everyone who helped with the Dec. 14 Share the Spirit holiday open house celebration at the State Theatre Center for the Arts, which exceeded $10,000 in donations. All direct donations were allocated to the American Heart Association, Boy Scouts of America, Rotary International, State Theatre and the Dowling Family Fund for Community Improvement, according to the wishes of our event attendees and donors.

More than 200 guests opened their hearts for our nonprofit partners.

A new addition to this year's event was the author book signing, which featured Fayette County's own Emile Etheridge and Vicki Leonelli. We also were honored to be joined by several authors from Raw Dog Screaming Press, including Uniontown natives Jason Jack Miller and Heidi Ruby Miller, as well as John Edward Lawson, Jennifer Barnes, Matt Betts, Michael A. Arnzen, K. Ceres Wright, D. Harlan Wilson, Matthew Warner and Stephanie Wytovich.

Refreshment sponsors were Bogey's, Boston Beanery, Brick Oven Cookery, Deb's Belmont Inn, Dimarco's Bistro, Ellie Mae's Catering, the Historic Stone House Inn, Myers Catering, Sonny's Sports Bar & Grill, The Sun Porch and Titlow Tavern and War Eagle Rations.

Finally, much appreciation is extended to business partners Coordinated 360, Fayette Holdings (Gary Gearing), Mundel's Furniture, Stefano's Printing, Neubauer's Flowers, Tim Mahoney and Ford Business Machines.

There is room for you as a committee member and as an event attendee for 2014. Simply send an e-mail to

Matthew & Rebecca Dowling
