Best of Clarksville fundraiser comes to a close

 

Best of ClarksvilleClarksville, TN – For the past 24 years, the Best of Clarksville has been a community fundraiser focused on giving back.

For 19 years, the event donated funds to a national charity. In 2015, the board members made the decision to choose Clarksville based charities that made a positive impact within the city.

Since 2015, the Best of Clarksville has been able to give nearly half a million dollars directly within our community, with 2019 receiving over $160k, breaking the record for any year prior.

After 24 years, Local Fundraiser Best of Clarksville ends.

The Best of Clarksville is proud of the fact the event has been operated solely from the volunteer efforts of Justin Grant, Courtney Berlyak, Art Conn, Dustin Wallace, Melanie Thompson and Sande Cox.

The non-paid board ensured 100% of the money from the annual event went directly to charities.

The scale of the event has far exceeded the possibility of continuing to grow as a volunteer-only board. As a result, the board has collectively decided to retire the event and the Best of Clarksville brand.

We are very appreciative and extremely thankful for the gracious event sponsors, the hundreds of local businesses that setup as vendors and the large number of the community that has participated in the Best of Clarksville for the past 24 years. The opportunity to serve in this capacity has truly been an honor.
