Every year MWMF selects several charitable organizations who support kids and / or the arts in Winona. This year we are proud to announce that Winona’s Early Childhood Initiative (WECI) will be the sole recipient of funds from the fourth annual MWMF. WECI’s commitment to building a brighter future for the next generation of Winonans is in-step with what we value at the MWMF.
From the Winona Daily News.
Festival founder honored
Mid West Music Fest founder Sam Brown received an annual Fine Arts Award from the city’s Fine Arts Commission last month for his work on the festival and for supporting local music.
Commissioners nominated 35 local individuals and organizations who promote performing, literary and visual arts in the Winona area. The two others honored were Chris Livingston, owner of The Book Shelf, and the Winona Symphony Orchestra.
The three received the awards at the commission’s meeting last month, and were acknowledged at Monday’s Winona City Council meeting.
