So last weeks fundraising party was a great success!! It took a lot of work, alot of planning, so much time and energy was put into putting this event together. And in the end, we pulled it off!!
The music of the Welfare Poets and Los Pleneros de la 21 was amazing! I felt so honored to have such talented artists performing at my event.
We also were blessed to have donations from the Savoy Bakery and the Nuevo Caribeno Restaurant, both small businesses located in El Barrio that are supportive of artists. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the space itself, which was donated by Michelle Cruz, owner of the East Harlem Caffe! Thank you Michelle!
Between the admission cover, the raffle sales, and the T-shirt sales, we were able to raise another good chunk of change towards the film! We are on our way!!
I am so grateful to my sister, my friends Lori and Jenny Lynn, and my boyfriend Joel, without whom I could not have put this event together!! And also to my parents who came from far away to be with us that nite!! Thank you guys from the bottom of my heart!! 🙂
We still have Millie t-shirts for sale (15 bux), so please feel free to leave a comment if you would like to buy one.
Thats all for now!!
