Prime Time Events Shuts Its Doors

An area non-profit agency announces it's closing its doors.

On May 18, 2007 Prime Time Events announced it will cease operations due to the uncertainty of funding from year to year.

The organization scheduled events and fundraisers for other agencies.

Those include US Bank's Balloons, Tunes BBQ, The Medical Center 10K Classic, and Houchen's Industries Winter Lights.

"Since 1998 we've probably brought in over a million dollars to the various agencies," said Jeff Younglove, the chairman for Prime Time Events.

Prime Time Events recently wrapped up its last project, the Junior Achievement Mini-Corvette Challenge.

Kids On The Block is moving forward with its annual fundraiser, Scotty's Contracting and Stone Festival of Sand, despite the closure of Prime Time Events.

"We always know things like this are a possibility," said Heather Higgins, with Kids On The Block.

Prime Time Events was a non-profit agency that helped others plan large fundraisers, like Festival of Sand.

"They were designed to help non-profits in the community, so they know that non-profits have a smaller budget than a regular business," said Higgins.

Now Kids On The Block is reorganizing parts of its event.

In the past, Prime Time Events helped get the vendors and many of the activities.

"We're looking into having a carnival this year where they would have their people coming in to work those rides and they would have some food available with that particular carnival. So, they would handle it," said Higgins.

While some of the logistics are still being worked out those with Kids On The Block say they're still planning for a successful event.
