If you live in Colorado and are connected with any non-profit, you have probably already heard of Colorado Gives Day which is December 6th. Last year non-profits throughout Colorado raised almost $8 million on Colorado Gives Day. That's right, in 24 hours.
We at Opera Colorado are ecstatic about Colorado Gives Day. Our goal is to get 300 donors in 24 hours, and to raise $200,000! One might think, well that's impossible! We say to that: Not with your help!
We'll be at The Ellie Caulkins Opera House the morning of December 6th from 7am - 10am passing out free coffee and taking online donations. Then we'll move to Brio Tuscan Grille in Cherry Creek which is donating 15% of sales for the day to Opera Colorado. We'll also be taking donations throughout the day there. Your support for lunch and/or dinner would make the day even more successful! Meanwhile, board members will be making phone calls to donors from Opera Colorado headquarters in an effort to get even closer to 300.
Whew! It's going to be an amazing day!
The minimum donation is only $10.00! The more donors we get, the better chance we have of making our 2011 fundraising goals as well as getting press throughout 2012. We can hit 300 if all those who support live opera and the performing arts make even the minimum donation. Will you join us?
By the way, donations can be made now and count towards our goal for December 6th.
