With less than 1/2 hour to go we have surpassed our goal, met the amount for a third party lighting contractor and have enough to begin our application for 501(c)3 status! What a fantastically generous and supportive family.
Save July 7, 2012 for our exciting second annual concert. You won't want to miss it!
What an amazing last few days for our first intensive on-line fundraising effort! Thanks to all of our family of supporters, near and far. We've exceeded our goal with enough to pay for our lighting up front as well as honor our commitments to the fabulous artisans creating our costumes. With one day to go, we will turn our attention to a great need -- any additional funding will start us on our way toward nonoprofit status!! Thanks to everyone for helping us realize our dreams!
Great news, everyone!! We've almost made our goal with only 4 full days to go! We've learned from Johns Hopkins University, Shriver Hall, where the concert will be held July 7, that our lighting fee will be $1000. That's higher than we anticipated, but with 4 days to go, we can make up some of that if we push over the goal.
