Fundraising is a necessary responsibility of any group that has expenses. Sources of Crystal Coast Choral Society, Inc. funds include grant awards, membership annual dues, individual and business sponsorships, concert ticket sales and donations, CCCS cookbook and professional CD sales, and creative fundraising initiatives.
The Crystal Coast Choral Society receives support in part from the Grassroots Arts Program of North Carolina and the National Endowment for the Arts. Our Grassroots Sub-grant funding has been awarded through the Arts Councils of Onslow and Carteret counties and must be matched by our other sources of revenue.
Ongoing Fundraising Opportunities
In our 20th Anniversary year, the Crystal Coast Choral Society produced a cookbook, Noteworthy Recipes, to share our collected favorite recipes, as well as others from local restaurants. Categories for the 548 recipes include Handel Finger Foods, Puccini Punches, Chopin Salads, Verdi Vegetables, Beethoven Beef, Sibelius Seafood, Vivaldi Meatless Dishes, Mozart Muffins, Ellington Cakes, Copeland Cobblers & Crisps, and Sousa Sauces, to name a few. Profits from the sale of our cookbook help support our music programs and scholarship fund.
To order your copy of Noteworthy Recipes, please click on the CCCS Store button above to order online OR send a check or money order, made out to Crystal Coast Choral Society, Inc. and mail to P.O. Box 1954, Swansboro, NC 28584. Each cookbook is $13.50 per copy (shipping and handling included).
