Signature 2012: A New Approach to Fundraising!!

How do you continue to raise funds for a non-profit arts organization in down turned economy?? "By being creative and coming up with a unique location, holding the event on a Friday rather than a Saturday and utilizing a state-of-the-art texting program for a donation campaign and of course a silent auction" says Chamberlain Performing Arts Board Member and 2012 Chairwoman Amy Wagner.
This year, Chamberlain is launching Signature 2012, a fundraising event open to the public. The event will feature the talents of Dallas' own Emerald City Band, dinner and both live and silent auctions to be held in the Park Place Jaguar Plano showroom on Friday, February 24th.
Another huge piece of the support program for Chamberlain Performing Arts are foundations and individuals willing to offer matching donations. Christina and Rudy Andrea and the Andrea-Mennen Family Foundation (TAFF) have offered matching donations up to $10,000. But again looking for that creative twist, Rudy Andrea suggested a texting donation campaign. Beginning on Friday, February 17th, anyone wishing to support the outreach efforts of Chamberlain Performing Arts can donate any amount they wish and it will be matched!! There is only one week to text in to donate as it will end on Friday, February 24th.
