Where Does Your Donation Go?
While we may not meet all of these goals, we feel it is imperative that we outline specific areas of need that your generous donations will help us address.
The general wear and tear of live production takes a major toll on our audio and video equipment. We are constantly needing to upgrade, repair and maintain our equipment and this comes at a major price. In addition to regular maintenance, this year we would like to add a second boom crane and a rear camera for our live productions as well as some new and much needed audio production gear for our livestream production.
At the bar, we are hoping to add a new refrigerator for additional beer taps and a dishwasher so we can eliminate the use of plastic cups that are non-recyclable, helping to make the Fallout Shelter more environmentally friendly.
Another area we would like to address is to hire a publicist to help us promote the Extended Play Sessions Experience to audiences around the country and to television stations in markets like Nashville, Austin, Chicago and others. This is an ongoing monthly expense that we simply can't accomplish with our current level of income from live events.
Our goal is to raise between $15,000.00 and $20,000.00 to help us achieve some of our future goals for 2023.
We greatly appreciate your support. Without our amazing community, none of this would be possible.
