HOLA@35: WE HAVE REACHED OUR GOAL!!
As part of HOLA's 35th anniversary, we had a challenge posed to us. An organization (that chooses to remain anonymous) pledged to give HOLA $10,000 if we raised an additional $10,000 in 90 days. Our 90th day was June 22, 2010.
It is my pleasure to say that we not reached our goal, we surpassed it, raising over $12,000. That will be a grand total of over $22,000 raised for the HOLA@35 fund. (Mind you, you can still donate to the HOLA@35 fund. To do so, click here.)
We thank everyone who donated to the fundraising drive. Your names will be posted at the HOLA website at a future date. As part of the HOLA@35 fundraising drive, we had a benefit performance of Saulo García's new solo show La vida en los Esclavos Unidos at Repertorio Español. More info on that event (including photos) will be in an upcoming blog entry.
