TROY, Ohio (WDTN) - Mumford and Sons just keeps on giving to the community of Troy.
Non-profit groups that volunteered during the Labor Day weekend Gentleman of the Road Stopover Tour are receiving a chunk of donations collected.
Troy Main Street Inc. will split nearly $37,500 among 60 local groups. The money comes from the festival production company, Jam Productions LLC. The cash is its way of thanking the nearly 1,700 volunteers who worked during the festival.
“Over 9,000 volunteer man-hours were worked by the local community to ensure the smooth operation of the festival. We are delighted to provide donations, which are based upon hours served, to organizations that that stepped up big time for this event,” notes Karin Manovich, executive director of Troy Main Street. Most volunteer groups were non-profits, and other businesses designated non-profits to receive their donations.
Volunteers did a little of everything. They helped with concert set-up, clean-up, security, vending, ID checks, among others.
An estimated 40,000 people came to Troy to be a part of the weekend long event.
