UPDATE: WE'VE HIT OUR 2ND GOAL OF $4500. THANK YOU UNICORNS! WE ARE NOW JUST TRYING TO RAISE AS MUCH AS WE CAN IN THE NEXT 4 DAYS! ALL PROCEEDS ARE GOING TO THE NEW LED LIGHTING SYSTEM, BROUGHT TO US BY UNICORN - PAUL MORENO!

The actual cost of the lighting system is a little over $9K. With this next goal, we will buy the computer system to drive the lights, the RGB floodlight pixel grid and more lights! Ha! All of these parts = ONE GIANT PULSING MASS OF SPARKLY LIGHTS! **SPARKLE**

This year we're giving Charlie's Candy Mountain a make-over complete with a whole new bright & sparkly lighting system. Our fundraising efforts will support a couple of overhaul & upgrade projects that include:

First, we are going to add the lighting system we've been dreaming about for so long. The entire mountain will be covered in programmable LEDs. Charlie will be even more visible, more blinky, and 100% more SOUND RESPONSIVE! That means that the lights can blink in time to the best tunes on the whole playa… doesn’t that sound amazing?? (This lighting system is actually going to cost about $9,000, so all extra money raised will go to funding this.)

Second, we're going to add a cotton candy machine! Now you will be able to enjoy sweet, sugary goodness while riding around on the best art car ever to be created! What a sweet deal!

These enhancements to our beloved Charlie the Unicorn Art Car will help create an even bigger spectacle and any additional funds that we raise over our goal will all get poured into that spectacular new SOUND REACTIVE lighting system! Help us reach our goal and let's make this happen!

Risks and challenges

Timing is everything and we understand that with obligations in life, sometimes projects get pushed back. However, we have a large team of snarky unicorns to step up in the event another has to fall behind. No unicorn left behind!
