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 Letterto and copy all the County Commissioners :
I am following up on anthe status of the Street Painting Festival’s CI grant for 2011.
TheGrant 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:
"Your commitment and the commitment of the people in the City to be able to do these infrastructure projects will play well when we are able to bring a project before the legislature. Asking the legislature for all the money to do a project almost never works. The City has to have skin in the game too. And so the large commitment you are talking about making, if that moves through, I will then be able to go to the legislature and say 'the citizens of the City have made the commitment to do it,' now it's up to us to try to find a way to help." -- State Senator Jeff Clemens, June 17, 2014, Lake Worth City Commission meeting commenting on the LW2020 Bond vote on August 26.
