We need to raise all of the money for all of the beautiful music for all of the beautiful people, by Sara, with all of her heart
Hey folks, this is Jeff Black, the guy putting together the whole Sara Swenson show at Refuge Ranch.
This event is a dinner show. We're going to be grilling some hotdogs and hamburgers, and provide a few sides for "free", and then Sara will play for us in a very awesomely decorated barn for "free". We'll have hay bales for people to sit on, and horses (not in the same room, but in the general vicinity).
For more details on the event, check out the facebook event page:
I couldn't think of a more beautiful evening, but unfortunately I've put "free" in quotation marks because it does cost money. Food costs money, and Sara needs to make something off of this, as this is her job (She's taken the plunge). Plus I want to be able to give our volunteers a little momento for helping, as it's going to take quite a few folks to do this. Using some of my finances and materials, I've calculated $400 is the bare minimum of what I'll need.
If you don't know how Kickstarter works, if the date comes and we don't have our minimum goal ($400), then we don't get anything and none of our backers will be charged. If we make more than our goal, then I'll be able to breath a little easier, will have to use less of my own resources to make this happen, and Sara will be able to pull in more than her break even amount.
Some of you who visit this page may know that Sara has performed at my house a couple of times last year, and have come to love her music. I have Sara to thank for inspiring what has now become the Radon Lounge, a DIY concert venue in Springfield, IL. www.facebook.com/radonlounge
Some of you might also know that my wife and I volunteer at Refuge Ranch, a lovely place that rescues horses in trouble and now get painted by the kids who love them (come out to the ranch sometime if you're not sure what that means).
I've decided to marry these two awesome things together (with food), and now we are here. Thank you Refuge Ranch for providing a great place to do this, and Thanks to Sara for being agreeable to this little outing, and thank you if you're donating toward this idea.
