We hit $3,000--and MMMB still needs your help!
Thanks to 51 generous supporters of the joyous music and dance that MMMB shares with communities in Kentucky and beyond, our Kickstarter campaign surpassed the magic amount of $3,000, which guarantees that we will receive funding! We are grateful to all of you.
And we still need your help!
For starters, MMMB's expenses for the trip to HONK! TX will total about 3 times what we receive from $3,000 pledged on Kickstarter. Our all-volunteer band also has many expenses throughout the year, in which we perform for many thousands of people for no charge. In 2013, our public performances will include for the first time the Kentucky Derby Festival's Pegasus Parade!
Another big leap forward for MMMB: we are now officially a tax exempt charity!*
So please share our mutual MonkeyLove with your friends and family members: they can check out details of our February 16th fundraiser at the Facebook event page and our website, and we hope they'll join you in supporting us here on Kickstarter.
