Carrollwood Cultural Center at Daybreak - 845x321

A Message from Todd Dunkle

It saddens me to say, but my time as a staff member at the Carrollwood Cultural Center has come to an end. I have been so very blessed to have spent these last 11+ years with you all. ..they’ve been the best years of my life.

I’m setting off on a new adventure that I feel I must take before I’m too old to have new adventures. But I’m leaving behind the best friends in the world.

I will no longer be a staff member, but I will remain a believer and supporter of the CCC for the rest of my days. The Carrollwood Cultural Center is an absolute blessing to this community and region. I believe it is the legacy we all hope to leave for our children’s children.

Special thanks to the Board of Directors, who have done such an amazing job of supporting the staff through this pandemic and keeping the Center strong. And a very special thanks to Paul Berg, who has made work feel like play and supported me through some challenging times…you have been and always shall be a friend.

To my office mate Adrienne, who has put up with me for more than 10 years now…I wish you would proofread this before I send it out. Thanks for being my friend!

Rob Curry, you’re the best…I hope we have plenty more baseball games, fishing and golfing in the near future!

Exciting things are happening at the Center. I believe that right now is a time of new opportunity for the Center to grow and evolve to bring the magic to new audiences in ways we never dreamed of 12 years ago.

I hope you will all remember me. But most of all, I hope that you will all continue to invest in the mission and future of the Carrollwood Cultural Center. Thank you for letting me be a part of this.
