Planning for our benefit concert next Sunday, February 14, is underway. It is really coming along! We have all of our bands lined up, more artists are asking to get involved and businesses are even reaching out to me to provide donations for the prize raffle! I am so happy to see such an amazingly positive response from the whole community to this event.
This next week is obviously crucial for marketing the event. We need to really get the word out there. We put up posters all around Potsdam and a few in Canton (with help from friends like Aviva Gold), we are talking to radio people like Barb Heller, Todd Truax and David Sommerstein to get a mention, and we're promoting on Facebook. So far I think the event has been shared about 20 times! Amazing!
We're hoping to get a great turnout and to encourage as many people as possible to buy tickets ahead of time at Brick and Mortar Music or at Jernabi Coffeehouse. Of course tickets can be purchased at the door, but we also want people to buy raffle tickets and bid on the amazing artwork we have.
It's a very exciting yet nerve-wracking week, but everything is lined up for this to be a fantastic event! Thanks to everyone involved (there's probably 50 people minimum who are helping in some way)!
