according to incredibly hard working and efficacious Lorenzo DeStefano
via way of Dona Wieckowski, THE official NEWS ON FANDANGO is…
the gross was approximately $10,000 on the day and evening of
FANDANGO AMERICANA Benefit for Art City InVentura
but what? what’s this about a CHALLENGE MATCH GRANT?! that’s right. A generous $25,000 has been granted to Art City InVentura. But Art City only gets the money gift IF, and only if, it is able to raise an INITIAL $25,000.
the donors, who wish to be known only as LONGTIME LOCAL SUPPORTERS OF ART CITY, have given Art City and supporters 90 days from March 8th, 2008 to raise the initial amount, which they will then match. now THIS is a challenge we can’t refuse.
work has just begun!
(speaking of which, check out the 1st blog (below) on re-construction of Art City, begun the morning after Fandango)
thank you so much, everybody who came to the Fandango, for supporting Art City. thank you so much to Bell Arts for hosting our event. SO generous. thank you to donors of in-kind services. thank you to volunteers, so much, so much. thank you to the City, for help and advice. thank you, anonymous patrons, for your generous match grant. thank you, Women of Jewelia, for your glamor!
smashing and sweet to meet you all along the road.
