The Country Jam featured a “Horse Race Auction” by Mundy Family Auctions, Ltd., and live music was provided by Sugarcreek. Catering services were provided by Rock Run Catering.

“The money we raised helps support the operating mission of the Greater Fostoria Community Foundation,” said GFCF Executive Director Michele Cochran. “We’ve been in existence since 1998, and since that time, we’ve given about $3.5 million in grants to over 60 organizations.”

Commissioner Frankart was grateful to support GFCF and its impact in the community.

“There was a tremendous crowd at the event,” he said. “I really enjoyed being there and seeing a lot of folks supporting the Fostoria area.”
