- DOORS OF ENCOURAGEMENT
- After 10 years, the Doors of EnCOURAGEment event has become a favored tradition in Downtown Bellefontaine. The beautiful door art lining the streets through the Doors of EnCOURAGEment display is beautiful in so many ways. Individuals, businesses, and organizations come together to sponsor and create spectacularly artful household doors to be auctioned. Many doors symbolize love and pay heartfelt tribute to those specifically in Logan County; neighbors, friends and family lost to cancer. The event not only raises much-needed funds for those faced with taking the cancer journey, but it also brings beauty to downtown, tears of fondness and so much joy to those who take part in its creation. Cancer touches the lives of everyone through personal experience or the experience of others within their circle, it’s this collectiveness that weaves the community together as a whole with one purpose – to help those suffering and in need.
- Through this meaningful event, nearly 850 Doors of EnCOURAGEment have been created and auctioned to raise over $400,000 to assist Logan County residents.
