Your donation will go directly towards creating our Fall Show, Matador, at the new Cowles Center.
Hello, friends and family,
Hope this email finds you all well.
As many of you know, I have been on the Board of Directors of ARENA Dances, a local non-profit, modern dance company in Minneapolis for four years and running. The Board has committed to raising money needed to cover various expenses that the company will incur to put on our Fall Show "Matador" at the brand new Cowles Center for Dance in downtown Minneapolis. These expenses include, but are not limited to: paying the amazing company of dancers, studio rental for rehearsals, advertising and marketing costs, costumes designed by beloved Twin Cities costumer Sonya Berlovitz and other miscellaneous production elements, including lighting designed by Jeff Bartlett.
As a non-profit, it's a continuous struggle to procure enough income to support all of the wonderful shows that we put on for the local community. "Matador" will be a great success! But not without help from each of you. Each Board Member has committed to raising $1100.00 by asking friends and family to contribute any amount that they can towards this very important artistic endeavor. I don't ask for much, but I'm hoping you'll consider helping me hit my goal by making a contribution. Any amount helps, but the suggested donation is $20 if you're able to swing it. Of course feel free to donate more if you can.
You will not need to set up an account to donate, so please click NOW on the link at the bottom of this message to make your donation. With the help of my wonderful friends and family, ARENA will be able to put on an amazing production which will continue our mission to make modern dance in the Twin Cities accessible and increase understanding and appreciation of this important art form. If we're unable to raise the amount we need, our ability to put on the show will unfortunately be put in jeopardy.
For more information about ARENA, please reach out to the me or visit ARENA's web-site, www.arena-dances.org. Sincere thanks for your time and consideration of ARENA Dances. And I hope to see you all on November 4th and 5th at the Cowles Center for Matador!
