We raised around $1700 during the fundraiser. I again thank everyone involved. There’s $1500 in the bank.
I don’t exactly know what to do with the money just yet. Should we go for cheap rent? Shirts, hats, etc. (that’s my vote, along with our logo)
Any ideas would help. I know we don’t have huge traffic as of yet, but that may change.
I have a cameo in it. I stole the show with my scenery chewing. Kidding, I’m a terrible actor. The film however’s been shown at the Kent Film Festival and other outings (including our fundraiser) to great reception. Here it is: The Auspix
I’ll wrap up the event when we get the figures, but for now, here’s some pictures. It was a great success. I would only change a few things.
We have now raised over $1500 dollars from the start of the event.
Quite a bit of it has been from friends and families, which is wonderful. It’s a great start to our foundation.
We also have received a letter from the Governor congratulating our group for the job we’re doing. I will be most likely posting that as time goes on.
Look forward to seeing everyone at the fundraiser. Here’s hoping for a good time.
Turns out I’d filed the correct papers with the State of Connecticut, but didn’t include the certified copy with my 501 (c) 3 package. So it’s still good. I need to ask for more time to get the copy out to the IRS.
We’ve now raised with a bit of effort around 600 dollars. That’s not including some equipment. It will not go too far, but it’s a wonderful start. I will be posting more updates on this as time goes by.
