We have decided on a fundraising idea to get us through the last remaining projects in our playscape!!! I'm not sure what to call this yet, an art walk with live music? A backyard concert with art? A fabulous neighborhood fundraiser to be sure!
Sunday, September 18th from 2pm-7pm we will hold a fundraiser in our backyard. We plan to invite local musicians to perform throughout the afternoon and local artists to come display their sculptures, garden art, installations, etc.
So, how do we turn this event into a fundraiser? We plan to ask for a suggested donation of $10 per adult the door as one avenue of raising the needed funds. Any artists selling their work will be asked to donate a portion of their sales to the Playscape Project as well. We will be contacting local breweries and wineries for donations of adult beverages for folks to enjoy on a donation per glass basis while they listen to music and wander through the yard enjoying the art, visiting with neighbors and finding out what a playscape is all about. As always, it's more than just raising funds, it's also a chance to raise awareness about the need for children to connect with nature in a real, meaningful way every day. So we hope to invite folks from the community to come to this fabulous event!
Since we are still in the planning stage, we'll have more news about our artists, musicians and ways to help out in the very near future! But for now, put a big circle around the 18th on your calendar and plan to stop by!
