Street Painting Festival Grant funding for 2011 is in jeopardy.

Dear Street Painters and Friends of the Street Painting Festival,

    We need your voices once again in helping us to secure funding for the 2011 Street Painting Festival.
Please take a moment to write the Palm Beach County Commissioners about how important grant funding is for the arts in South Florida and what it means to you to participate in such an event as the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival. The more e-mails they receive from the public that they represent the more impact it will have.
1)      Write a Letter to and copy all the County Commissioners :

Thank You! For all your help, support and participation. You are the Lake Worth Street Painting Festival! You make it all happen.

Best as always,

Maryanne Webber

Street Painting Festival Inc

* My apologies if you have received this e-mail in multiples, in my haste to get this out to all of you I may have duplicated databases.
   See the e-mail below from the Palm Beach County Cultural Council for more information.

Subject: Grant funding for 2011
Importance: High

Dear Maryanne,

I am following up on an the status of the Street  Painting  Festival’s  CI grant for 2011.

The Grant is in Serious Jeopardy!

The Commission is positioned to NOT fund next year’s grant of $13,396. The Cultural Council is doing everything we can to advocate on your organization’s behalf. Now we need you to advocate for yourselves – IT IS THE LAST CHANCE.

The Street Painting Festival needs to do three things:
2)      Write a Letter to your Commissioner and copy all the County Commissioners :,,,,,
3)      Attend the Budget Workshop on September 14 at 6:00 at the County Government Center .
4)      Speak Publically and tell the Commissioners that you are outraged about the lack of public funding for the arts and what it means to your organization and the people you support.

Please respond to me with your commitment.
