A note from our treasurer…

Dear Community, As a supporter of The 418 Project, either by attending performances or classes, you know that it offers an exceptional experience in an already exceptional community. Enjoying What Is Erotic? (my favorite local show), going to Ecstatic Dances or by otherwise participating, you have helped us create a unique place where the magic of movement art can flourish. So, you may be excited to hear about our end-of-year giving drive. As a non-profit, the 418 is completely dependent on the goodwill of its users and the community to provide and enhance the space that you have enjoyed. Indeed, in the past year, generous donors have allowed us to revamp our sound system, install an new HVAC system, and have even provided a filtered water station for the comfort of the dancers. Here are some of the items we’d love to have, to enhance an already fantastic space: • Floor Refinishing—$2800 every year thanks to the generosity of Golden Floors • New lights ($125 each) • Two New Speakers—$575 apiece—$1050 total • More paid hours for our fabulous Studio Manager, Brynne ($1300) • New fans (4 at $450 each) Make holiday shopping easy and meaningful; dedicate your gift to a treasured friend who loves dance and performance art as much as you do. All donations are fully tax-deductible. Know that we love monthly recurring donations, but anything that you give will let us know how much we mean to you. It keeps us going. Sincerely, Gabrielle Adelman, Treasurer, The 418 Project
