UPDATE: ONE WEEK LATER
It's been one week since organizers announced the $60,000 shortfall threatening the Funk Parade.
Since then, the community has raised about $25,000 for the event -- over $15,000 here on YouCaring, another $1,000 on Facebook, plus Chuck Levin's matching commitment, and merchandise sales of over $1,000.
It's a strong show of support for Funk Parade in just one week, and it has helped open conversations with potential sponsors who could help make up the difference. Thank you to everyone who has given to and shared the campaign.
Thanks also to WAMU, DC Music Download, NBC 4, WUSA 9, and GreaterGreaterWashington for coverage of this effort.
