The Mathews County Visitor Center has announced that it has raised sufficient funds for the upcoming renovation of Sibley’s Store, and that the organization will be undergoing a number of changes in the coming year.
“The Mathews Visitor Center Advisory Board is thrilled to announce that the community has officially helped us complete our $625,000 Capital Campaign fundraising goal to Save Sibley’s General Store,” fundraising chairman Hunt Thompson stated in a press release.
The community not only responded swiftly and generously to MCVIC’s plea for support in the Gazette-Journal in October, said the release, but residents more than doubled the $30,000 matching challenge grant from The Cabell Foundation, wrapping up the final public phase of the campaign in less than two months.
Any additional contributions that come in will be earmarked toward contingency funding for the project or set aside for future restoration and maintenance to Sibley’s, said the release.
