Where, who, or what happens to all the money from ticket sales?

Gilbertown Praise Fest is an all volunteer organization of Christian believers from Gilbertown, AL. No one in the organization or associated with the organization receives a salary or compensation of any type. Any money from the annual event in excess of expenses is carried over to the following year. This carry-over money will be used to offset ticket prices or cover unforeseen expenses. 

Most years expenses have exceeded revenue. If not for the generous donations of our sponsors and unnamed families, Praise Fest would not be able to continue. It is our intent to offer a ticket price that will allow us to meet our expenses only. These donations allow us to offer a ticket price that is normally half the price of other similar regional Christian concerts. You can learn more about supporting this ministry by clicking here.
