Bravo Fine Reduced

Financials Still Incomplete

BLYTHEWOOD – The S.C. Secretary of State has reduced the fine for Bravo Blythewood for continuing to not register with and file financial information with the agency’s Public Charities Division from $2,000 to $200. Martha Jones, who has been Bravo Blythewood’s CEO since it was incorporated as a non-profit on Aug. 3, 2011, had never filed with the Public Charities Division, according to Shannon Wiley, Deputy General Counsel.

While the fine was paid on March 5, Wiley said Jones has not yet met the agency’s financial reporting requirement. Wiley told The Voice that there is still some work to be completed with the group’s financial report that must be addressed by the accountant working with Jones. Jones did not respond to an email from The Voice for comment. Wiley was not sure when the accountant would come in to complete the financial report.

Bravo Blythewood is the cultural arts arm of the Town of Blythewood and is primarily funded by the Blythewood government.
