                      Thank you to everyone who backed INVISIBLE RIVER on Kickstarter.com! We made our funding goal of $12,000 and overfunded by $434! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for your support, time and consideration! The funding will pay the artists, our production staff, purchase insurance and costumes, document the performance, and print our marketing materials. On Tues 5/14, I found out that we need to raise another $3,100 to pay for permit fees and electrical costs during a recent meeting with the City. These expenses were not budgeted for and now I am still fundraising more for the event to make up this budget gap! In the past, the City waived permit fees for my events and now they will no longer do this -- if you can help out, please do!! You can make a tax deductible contribution online- go here: www.alieandthebrigade.org/donate.html The INVISIBLE RIVER Performances are taking place on Sun 6/16 & Sun 6/23 at 8pm. For more info: www.alieandthebrigade.org/upcoming--past-events.html I look forward to seeing you at the shows! Thank you again so much!!
