NEW RIVER BELL ENSEMBLE ~ BUY A BELL CAMPAIGN
The New River Bell Ensemble has launched its first fundraising campaign to purchase additional handbell octave sets. Their current set of bells was purchased through generous donations from the Grayson County Community Theatre and individuals throughout the Twin Counties. In order to expand their repertoire and accommodate the growing roster of ringers, the Ensemble needs to add octave sets of handbells. The goal is to raise $20,000. Donors at the $250 level and above may dedicate a bell with an engraved sentiment on the bell handle. To make a donation on-line, please visit the Art Shop page on this website. If you would like to make a donation by check, please download the form below.
