DULUTH - The Hudgens Center for the Arts has kicked off its annual fundraising campaign with a donation of $10,000.
Cisco's vice president Bill McCargo recently presented a check to the Hudgens Center to help continue its art exhibits, classes, camps and other art-related activities, a step toward reaching the organization's goal of raising $650,000 during its Hudgens Annual Campaign.
"Cisco has always been a wonderful supporter of the arts and has graciously extended that support to the Hudgens on many occasions," said Stan Hall, chairman of the Board of Directors for Hudgens. "This latest gift is simply a reaffirmation of that support and will enable the Hudgens to continue its work in providing the highest quality possible to the community as it pertains to the fine arts, and for that we are very grateful."
Cisco, off Sugarloaf Parkway in Lawrenceville, supplies Internet networking equipment and networking management.
"There is a vision and a commitment to arts education and exhibits at the Hudgens that can and will benefit everyone," McCargo said. "Their hard work has been noticed by the community and Cisco is proud to be a great friend of the Hudgens. They have done a wonderful job and they have a wonderful future."
