So, we’ve recovered fully (at least some of us), and the monies are all counted and on top of all the fun, after all expenses, we have we raised $800 bucks towards bringing PlayaTime to The Burn. Awesome!!!
On behalf of the Producers and the entire BMV CORE team, we want to say thanks to everyone who came out to supportthe event! We shmoozed, we drank, we ate, we danced like crazy, we reminisced local events passed, and we DANCED. And we were the first to see the scale model of Playa Time, made by our Technical Producer, Robert!
Your gift to the “Playa Time” art project will help the BMV CORE team to build and transport this unique community art project to Burning Man this year. We hope you’ll be able to join us to see Playa Time standing along side all the other CORE projects brought by Regional groups from around the world, and to celebrate when it burns.
And massive gratitude to all of you who responded to our callout for volunteers, who came out to help setup and run the event. From the folks who arrived early to setup the food/bevvies station, sound system, visuals and the event space; to those who
volunteered their time to serve; to those who brought or donated items to sell; to the musicians and DJs for raising the energy to superb heights; to those who stayed late to mop the floors and pick up butts outside the event at 3am; and all the work that went into it in between. We are a great community and WE KICK ASS!
And this is just the beginning…
- We have build days happening every Sunday until we’re done. Details here.
- Tomorrow night is a chance to participate in the first fundraising work party. Details here.
- We’re working on a bigger community event & fundraiser for May or June. Details to come.
