Of course this is a FANTASTIC start, but it is just a start. We need to keep going with our fundraising to cover the venue/production costs.
GRANTS: So… we have submitted our application for an $8K arts-grant from RADF (Regional Arts Development Fund). Wish us luck with that!
SPONSORSHIP: And we are now moving onto seeking sponsorship from businesses.
If you know a business that may be interested in investing in the performing arts with excellent promotional opportunities, please contact us!
DONATIONS: For those who missed out on pledging to the Pozible campaign, Footlights will also soon be open for donations to the Billy Buckett fund.
In return for your donations will be similar levels of rewards as the Pozible campaign – eg Preview Tickets, backstage tour and meet the cast, limited edition cast t-shirts etc…
So WATCH OUT for more info on how you can donate and get rockin’ rewards!
