Proposed Sherman’s renewal sale to Caroga Arts
- Caroga Arts Collective (Caroga Arts) is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization with over 150 local volunteers coming from the Town of Caroga. Caroga Arts has already brought world-class music, arts and community events to Caroga Lake since 2012.
- Caroga Arts is dedicated to revitalizing the Town by creating a first-rate entertainment venue and community center through the expertise and connections of our board, advisory council, staff and volunteers in and beyond the community.
- Caroga Arts plans to raise funds, at no expense to the Town, to improve the Sherman’s property so that it can be used by all members of the community for concerts, car shows, farmers markets, festivals, picnics, town meetings, pre-school, school-age and adult education, and many other town and community events.
- Caroga Arts is committed to enhancing Sherman’s as an asset to the community through attracting and retaining residents, tourists, and business, increasing Town sales tax revenue.
- Caroga Arts has received an anonymous $125,000 matching grant for an entertainment venue and anticipates many more grants and donations once Caroga Arts starts a capital construction drive for improvement of Sherman’s.
