Safety Harbor Art and Music Center is about to become a reality

The Safety Harbor Art and Music Center is about to become a reality, thanks to a lot of online support.

As we showed you in the past, SHAMc was looking for votes to win a $50,000 Pepsi Refresh grant to create an art and music hub. After a couple months of voting, they found out they achieved their goal.

"WOW WHAT A WHIRLWIND!!!!" SHAMc says on its Facebook page. "SHAMc got over a quarter of a million votes, finishing 9th in top 10 and was the number 1 art and music project in the country."

Not to be outdone, they say an anonymous patron has pledged an additional $55,000 contribution to making the dream a reality.

The Whimzey House, which could end up being the location of SHAMc, was recently featured on MTV's "Extreme Cribs."
