Thank you from all of us for coming out to the raffle and show this past Monday! It was a surreal and wonderful night. We raised $550, which won’t cover costs for all we’d hoped for– it is a difficult season for fundraising. The truck from California wasn’t meant to be this year, but we will be able to bring in Simeon from Alabama and a whole trailer of amazing sculpture from North Carolina. The generosity of the bands, the Allways Lounge, everyone who came out, all friends who volunteered to help, and those who donated to the raffle made the night a great one! We hope you can join us for this last leap of faith! We still have expenses to cover– in addition, a few local artists came forward with new ideas and they need help with expenses– we want to help get their projects finished. If we can raise at least another $500 before the Automata weekend then we’ve met our goal. Please come out to the party this Saturday, and invite everyone you know!

We’d like to thank our Queen of the Grill, expert and scientific chef, and impresario of the Charismatic Battle, Tallulah Elvis Poodle, who will also do your taxes. Mr. Jeff Shyman of Confederacy of Cruisers is not just a consultant on proper feeding of masses but also maker-from-scratch of the BBQ sauce. 2 kinds of BBQ sauce, depending on your animal.
Thanks also to Wagner’s Meat on St. Claude, once again to Allways Lounge, and all Automata volunteers.
