In addition to celebrating this momentous occasion, we invite you to help us in the final stretch of our Kickstarter campaign. A month ago we set out to raise $16,000 to cover operations expenses in 2016. According to Kickstarter's terms, we will only receive the pledged monies if we meet or exceed this goal.
If you have already made a donation to our Kickstarter campaign - thank you!
To help reach our goal, we are launching a week of pop-up fundraising events at various locations around Rochester to secure the additional $3,500 we must raise by January 11. We invite you to celebrate with us in attending these events, which include a kick-off concert, a studio open house, clothing swap, and more. We hope that you'll join us - we'd love to spend some time with our donors!
