Squalid Gold is going to NYC to perform at the 2nd annual NYC Improv Festival hosted by the Peoples Improv Theatre

Squalid Gold is a year old improv group formed by a bunch of misfit Groundlings folks.  We have been performing regularly at the Improv in Hollywood, but on March 23rd 2013 at 4:30pm we have our first big opportunity to perform in the birthplace of theatre (the ancient greeks only thought they created theatre) NEW YORK CITY!  We are overwhelmingly excited to be performing in the NYC Improv Festival hosted by The Peoples Improv Theatre aka the PIT.  This will be our first adventure to the unknown where we will be in a foreign land surrounded by strangers with only one goal in make them laugh.  However, because this is an adventure far far away we need some help financing our expenses.  Specifically we are looking for donations to help subsidize the cost of airfare, room, and board.  Now I don't know if you all have been to New York City lately but it is hella expensive.  So any amount big or small you can give would not only be greatly appreciated but it would be helping to allow our group this amazing opportunity to travel to and perform in New York City.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The primary challenge for our group is that we are very passionate about this opportunity to go to New York City and be part of this exciting festival, but the cost of travel and lodging is very steep. Our group is primarily made up of young adults who don't have access to funds for this type of venture. However, we are a group with a dream and no matter what we will be in New York City on March 23rd performing in the NYC Improv Festival!
