Keystone Awards an Important Fundraiser

In addition to honoring a group of people for their contributions to the Sheridan community, the Keystone Awards are an important fundraiser for The Hub on Smith Street.

Carmen Rideout, who's executive director of The Hub, elaborated.

The Keystone Awards will be held April 16 at Sheridan's WYO Theater.

This is the 10th year for the awards, which were first held on April 28, 2011, at the Sheridan County Fairgrounds.

Rideout said by leveraging the money raised through the Keystone Awards, The Hub can serve more people.

She said people want to stay close to home, around their belongings and their friends and family, and The Hub can help them do that. But, she said, none of the programs and services provided by The Hub break even – all need additional funding.

She said the Keystone Awards are a big part of The Hub's fundraising efforts.
