Allegory Gallery Fundraiser Update...

Today is the last day of the Allegory Gallery Fundraiser! We reached 57% of our original goal. While we didn't meet our target goal, we are still grateful for the support and financial donations made to get the gallery open. It means so much to us! We consider ourselves so lucky to receive what we have; there have been earthquakes, hurricanes, and power outages to combat and we still did really well! Thank you so much! We really couldn't have done it without the generous support of the beautiful and vibrant community that we belong to.

Even though the Fundraiser didn't meet our initial goal, the show must go on! We won't be able to do everything that we wanted to do right off the back, but we'll slowly build up to those dreams and hope that you will continue to follow along the journey.

If you made a financial contribution and are set to receive a Thank You Prize, they will go out by the middle of November. Thanks again to everyone who made this possible!

And if you're in the area, make sure to join us September 15th for the GRAND OPENING and the opening reception for the current art show, "The Long Way Home".

(OH! And if you still want to make a donation, the Donation Button on the original post about the fundraiser will be kept live until the end of September. So there's still time if you want to contribute!)

Oh no! I have not been able to donate as much as I wanted to....I didn't realise the fundraiser deadline was so soon. I have given $20. I will put in another $30 before the end of the month. That's a promise :-)

Andrew, I am so looking forward to hearing all about your new gallery. I know it will be a special place and if I were closer I'd be at the opening in a heart beat. Best of luck with everything.

Since starting my blog two months ago, I have learned that the beading community is filled with wonderful, supportive, kind people. What a wonderful place to be! We all want each other to be successful and are rooting for you 100% Andrew. Congratulations on your exciting new adventure! Hope to visit your gallery someday. Anyone up for a road trip?

I am so excited for this new chapter you are writing, Andrew. Just because you didn't meet the goal doesn't mean you won't. I think that the opening sounds great, I just wish I weren't so far away!
Enjoy the day!

Dang! It's ending too soon! I couldn't make a donation either and I'm so sorry! As soon as I get paid I will. Hopefully before the end of the month. Ah well!
I'm glad that it isn't stopping you to get the gallery going!

I will be cheering on the grand opening day from a distance! And here's to much success and a wonderful time in that creative space you are making real!
