Update from Embracing Arlington Arts
Dear Arts Patrons, Aficionados and Supporters,
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! This Update covers the latest on our arts activities and initiatives in Arlington.
First REMINDER…..REMINDER……REMINDER….Please join us May 1 (TOMORROW) from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm for our Fundraiser at Heavy Seas Alehouse. 10% of ALL proceeds from patrons bringing in the attached flyer or telling their wait staff they are there for the fundraiser will be donated to Embracing Arlington Arts. ALL of these dollars will be used towards a Press Release subscription with ArlNow that will allow our Arlington arts organizations and artists to submit 2-3 Press Releases a year for free (instead of the several hundred dollars it would cost them) on the ArlNow website. Estimated reach is 250,000 readers.
We all have to eat. So why not have your dining dollars have double value by steering them towards the Arts in Arlington!
If you find you cannot come on May 1, but believe this is an important cause and initiative, then you can always donate through our status as a fiscally sponsored project under the umbrella of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization. To check out our fiscal sponsorship page and make a tax deductible contribution to help us reach our goal of $1,600 to purchase this subscription package, follow this link: https://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/FiscalSponsorship/profile?id=16952.
