14 Dec Shari Flaming Center For The Arts Dedication
On Friday, December 9th, Tabor College of Hillsboro, Kansas dedicated their $13 million Shari Flaming Center for the Arts. Through the determination and enthusiasm of Dr. Jules Glanzer; Ron Braun, VP for Advancement; Trustees, the Advancement team and the entire Tabor family, Tabor completed this facility debt free and exceeded their $18 million Signature Campaign with a total of $18,683,630. Since 2,000, Tabor has raised just under $60 million for capital, annual and endowment funds!
The Timothy Group has partnered with Tabor College since 2008. Pat McLaughlin, President and Founder of The Timothy Group spoke at the dedication and then was honored with a surprise award for his service to Tabor. The Tabor College/Timothy Group team has been a great partnership. Dr. Glanzer shared some kind words about working together, “Everything I know about fundraising, I learned from The Timothy Group. Pat went on donor visits with us for this campaign. One important thing Pat taught us was to listen to your donors. If you listen to them, they will tell you when and how much. I would attribute our fundraising success solely to the help of Pat and The Timothy Group. When we did what they asked us to do, it worked.”
The award presented to Pat is inscribed, “The Timothy Group – In grateful recognition for your service to Tabor College – Shari Flaming Center for The Arts – Dedicated 12/9/17.”
It’s appropriate that the first performing arts event in the Shari Flaming Center for the Arts was, Handel’s “Messiah.” Hallelujah for God’s provision of this wonderful new facility through the unparalleled generosity of the Tabor College constituency!
Patrick McLaughlin is President and Founder of The Timothy Group. Pat has personally assisted more than 1,654 Christian organizations. In 27 years of service, The Timothy Group has raised over $2.2 billion.
