The Fabulous Fifties Foundation

The Fabulous Fifties Foundation was formed by a group of Fabulous Fifties Show veterans and enthusiasts. Their desire was to see the show funds have a deeper effective in Lincoln County. For years, show proceeds were donated to an organization that split the funds among an eight county area.

With the formation of this 501c3, funds may now be used to serve locals facing illness, accidents and hardships. The Foundation is delighted to see the talent of locals musicians and actors benefit their neighbors, coworkers, and community members.

The Foundation board consists of 2 show directors, 9 singers, and 2 supporters. Each member of the board is a respected community leader and committed to serving Lincoln County.

The Fabulous Fifties Show

Peggy Mann, a local arts enthusiast, had been to see a show in Shelbyville, Tennessee. On her way home, she told her husband Ralph, "I believe we can do something like this in Fayetteville, and it will be a good fundraiser for our community."

As Peggy brain stormed ideas with Cary Sullivan and Edith McKay, her thought started becoming a reality. Edith began working on a script, and Cary began recruiting talent and selling tickets.

On a wing and a prayer, they finished the first year. It went off without a hitch. Locals, along with people from other communities sent cards, flowers, and gifts to the cast members. There were even gold stars placed on the dressing room doors back stage.

Over the years the show has grown from two shows to nine. Money was donated to the American Cancer Society for the first twenty and then to the Multi-County Cancer Support Network. Now, show proceeds go the Fabulous Fifties Foundation, a 501c3 that allows funds to serve families in Lincoln County.

The show is highly anticipated by the community and surrounding areas. Each November and December calls start coming in with inquiries about ticket sales. Countless hours of practice, preparation and laughter make this show a joy for those on and off the stage.

Remembering a quote from Helen Keller, "Alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much."
