Here’s your update on the 75 in 75 Drive

for May 16, 2019

To recap, the Longmont Performing Arts Initiative is looking for 75 members of our community who want to help with a donation of $1,000 or more.  The funds will go toward our portion of the cost of a feasibility study for a new performing arts center and convention facility in Longmont.  Gifts of all amounts are appreciated, and special recognition will be granted to those who give $1,000 or more.

Our goal is to raise $75,000 by 6/01/2019
so the feasibility study can start soon.
The total is currently about $44,110 in donations and pledges, including those from all of the
LPAI member organizations.

There are only 16 days to go!
