KILMARNOCK—Tidewater Foundation grant recipients were honored recently at an awards presentation.
Representatives of the various organizations receiving funds met with president Ammon G. Dunton Jr. at the Lancaster Community Library on March 2, at which time they received the 2016 grants and discussed the use of the funds which they have received from the Tidewater Foundation in the prior year.
The Tidewater Foundation was established more than 60 years ago to enrich the lives of local residents. In recent years it has focused on pre-college education and cultural enrichment for our local citizens, explained Dunton.
For many years the Tidewater Foundation has worked with the Holly Ball, a black tie invitational ball held during Christmas week. It has become the sponsor of the ball and the net proceeds are distributed by the foundation.
