GREENSBORO, NC — Big events mean big bucks for the Triad.
The price tag of economic impact for the Women’s ACC Championship is $4.6 million for the city of Greensboro.
The Wyndham Championship creates approximately $50 million.
But this year, Greensboro is missing out on nearly $26 million.
The reason is because Greensboro won’t be transforming into Tourney town for the Men’s ACC Championship in 2016.
We know the city is bringing in other events to make up for the loss, but the question is, will it be enough?
City leaders and Greensboro Coliseum Complex executives aren’t denying the problem.
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Students at Weaver Academy hope a ‘tiny’ project will someday help a bigger cause.
Tom Bater and his students are currently building a ‘tiny’ house as part of a shop class project. The project was funded by Guilford County Schools. Once construction is complete, the house will be auctioned off and the money will go back into the school system.
Tom says because the project is funded by taxpayer money, it cannot be donated or given to charity. But he says eventually, he and his students would like to see their tiny homes help those in need in the community.
